Les refrappes dans le monde grec: apports et limites des analyses de laboratoire

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This communication, devoted to the restriking of coins in the Greek world during Antiquity, first proposes a qualified assessment of the results of elemental analysis that aim to deter-mine the provenance of the coined metal. Then, drawing on those results and on literary sources, it tries to shed light on conditions of metal supply (in the form of coins or ingots) of mints like Athens, Siphnos and Thasos, leading thus to the development of analytical models that aim to im-prove our understanding of the phenomenon of restriking and the part it played in Greek coinage.
