Org. and chair: Tedo Dundua

The origins of Georgian coinage date to the 6th century BC . Much has been done towards attribution of monetary groups and making the general numismatic narrative. However, until 2013-2015 there was no catalogue for Georgian coinage.
The Online English-Georgian Catalogue of Georgian Numismatics was a project funded by the Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation. Now it is complete but still in need of publicising, like the Georgian coin issues themselves. This session is intended to serve this purpose.
