Summer School of Ancient Numismatics in Athens – July 2017

The Institute of Historical Research of the National Hellenic Research Foundation is pleased to announce the organisation of its first Summer School on Ancient Greek and Roman Numismatics, to take place at its premises in Athens, from 3 to 12 July 2017.

The Summer School aims at familiarising those who have little or no numismatic background with Ancient Greek and Roman numismatics by offering a series of courses on methodology and various special themes. It will consist of lectures, practical sessions and visits to numi-smatic collections, museums and rele-vant archaeological sites in Attica.

The instructors are mainly researchers at the Institute of Historical Research of the National Hellenic Research Foundation, with contributions by other experts in numismatics. Each year a visiting scholar will be invited to develop a special topic.

The Summer School on Numismatics is addressed to undergraduate, postgra-duate students and PhD candidates in History, Archaeology and Art History, to historians and archaeologists, but also to individuals with a special interest in the subject.

The courses will be taught in English and will be offered to a limited number of applicants who will be selected by the Scientific Committee. All participants will receive a certificate of participation.

The detailed programme of the Summer School, participation fees and the application procedure will be announced in January 2017 on the NHRF website (
