Coins of the Greek and Roman World

Ancient coins are rich in information about the ancient world. Deciphering this information, however, can be quite the task for a novice archaeologist or historian. This exhibit attempts to provide some essential context for the coins found in the collection of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art. Hallie Ford Museum Omeka Exhibit

Culture Through Currency: Antiochia ad Pisidiam

Archaeologists have been drawn to the Colonia Caesarea Antiochia since its "discovery" by Francis Vyvyan Jago Arundell in 1833. Antioch was a flourishing Greek polis that was adapted into an Imperial Colony of the Roman Empire. Cities used currency as a civic communication tool and political propaganda. Antioch's coinage serves to define the main religious and cultural identifiers of a colony. Hallie Ford Museum Omeka Exhibit
