Antike Rollenbilder. Wertvorstellungen in Münzbildern at the Museum of the University of Tübingen

“Antike Rollenbilder. Wertvorstellungen in Münzbildern” at the Museum

exploring ancient gender roles and their reception in Greek and Roman
coin imagery. The exhibition contextualizes the coins with a variety
of archaeological objects such as gems, drinking-cups, and oil-lamps

visual experiences in the Greco-Roman world.

photographs). The catalogue is for sale from Habelt Verlag. Inquiries
