The course aims at familiarizing the students with the methodology of Numismatics –the discipline that studies coins and coin-formed objects– via a series of exercises on the identification, description and recording of ancient coins kept at the Cast Museum of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Furthermore, it focuses on the development of Numismatics from the Renaissance to the digital era as well as the importance of coins as a tool employed by archaeologists and historians in their attempt to interpret the past.
