Announcement of the Exhibition: Thrace 3.0. Coinage in the Land of Orpheus
The ancient area of Thrace, which comprises the modern states of Bulgaria, Greece and the European part of Turkey, is characterised by a varied landscape, an eventful history and a manifold coinage. A research project on ancient Thracian coins in the holdings of the Berlin Münzkabinett and the development of a web portal on Thracian coins from several collections together with the Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften gives occassion for this exhibition in the Bode-Museum. Exhibition and Portal will present Thracian coins from the Archaic to the Roman Imperial Period issued by Greek colonies, Thracian tribes, local rulers and Roman provincial administrators.
