A New Volume of 'Pontica et Mediterranea'
Section 1 brings together six contributions addressing different aspects of Black Sea history, from colonization to problems of identity; Section 2 is devoted to different scholarly traditions in studying multicultural encounters and acculturation; Section 3 discusses new discoveries and prospective research directions; and Section 4 clusters articles focusing on various religious aspects. Papers from the conference’s session devoted to the preservation of cultural heritage will be published as a separate volume. Two articles published in the volume were contributed by members of the CN-team: the paper by Ulrike Peter discusses the perspectives of numismatic research in the digital age, drawing on the data and new functionalities of the CN web-portal (‘Von Mommsen zum Semantic Web: Perspektiven der vernetzten numismatischen Forschung – die Münzen der westlichen Schwarzmeerküste online’), whereas the paper by Vladimir F. Stolba explores the early Hellenistic coinage of Olbia Pontike (‘Images with Meaning: Early Hellenistic Coin Typology of Olbia Pontike’).
