This event, co-ordinated by David Jacobson, Nikos Kokkinos and Philip Skingley and co-sponsored by the Institute of Jewish Studies at University College London (UCL), follows two previous London conferences ('The World of the Herods and Nabataeans' in 2001 and 'Herod and Augustus' in 2005), which were successful events and have become reference points.
The period covered spans the Roman conquest of Judaea by Pompey through to the last major Jewish uprising against Roman rule under Simon Bar-Kokhba, and encompasses the birth of Christianity. The past few decades have seen considerable advances in numismatic scholarship dealing with this period, partly stimulated by archaeological exploration and numerous coin finds, which have shed new light on the historical events and associated political, social and economic issues. We should like to use this conference to exchange views and analyse the fresh developments from new perspectives.
Well-known experts in the fields of Roman and Jewish numismatics will be delivering lectures in four sessions over two days, these are:
Michel Amandry, Dan Barag, Julian Bowsher, Andrew Burnett, Kevin Butcher, Ted Buttrey, David Hendin, David Jacobson, Morten H rning Jensen, Nikos Kokkinos, Larry Kreitzer, Kenneth Lonnqvist, Sam Moorehead and Danny Syon.
Hospitality in the form of buffet lunches and refreshments will be provided.
The Conference Proceedings will be published.
A small related exhibition will be on display in the Spink showrooms for the duration of the Conference and a visit to the British Museum is scheduled where a further related exhibition is planned.
The cost of participation for the four sessions is 80 or 50 for full-time students. To register your interest in this event please contact Philip Skingley at Spink and Son Ltd., 69 Southampton Row, Bloomsbury, London WC1B 4ET.
