Description

Thurium is one of the most important Greek colonies in Magna Graecia, both because of its connections to other cities and innovative coinage. However, the current arrangement and knowledge of Thurian coins has not yet reached a level that is comparable to other cities of similar importance. This oversight has repercussions for our understanding of the politics and economy of Magna Graecia.

This paper – an outcome of more than four years of studies made within a project funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) - addresses the question of how the potential uses of an extensive die-study in the 21st century.
