Toppo grandi per essere studiati? / Too big to study? - 18-19/05/2018, Trieste (Italy)
Enormous coin hoards have always been discovered, and very large quantities of coins are also found in archaeological excavations carried out in urban areas. All these great amounts of coins can be dated either to a restricted period or distributed along many centuries. However, these findings put the researchers in front of complicated issues mainly concerning the methodology of their study, which necessarily conditions the results of the numismatic research. We should refer, for example, to a series of important large coin discoveries such as the Misurata's hoard, the Tomares's hoard, the Roman hoard of Frome in Somerset, the Celtic hoard buried near Seaton Down, as well as the well-known Čentur hoard. The modern coin finding of The Big Sky Hoard in Montana, Eisenhower $ is also very interesting. In all these cases it is/was not really easy to examine such large monetary findings. How to deal with them? How many time can we dedicate to this kind of studies? In fact, we have several options: a full study or a partial research, or also a statistical survey and archeometric or georeferencing analysis.
