The Small Stuff of the Palmyrenes: The Coins and Tesserae of Palmyra - 20-21/06/2019, Copenhage (Denmark)




Themes to be explored in the conference papers include the iconography and inscriptions of the local coinage and the tesserae; the reflections of local traditions in the visual language of these groups of material; the influence of traditions from other regions than Palmyra itself, traceable through these objects; the significance of the tesserae for the understanding of the structure of Palmyrene religious life; and the significance of the coinage for the understanding of Palmyra’s urban networks and economy.




LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO: The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters, Copenhage (Copenhage, Denmark)
