The Workshop on Late Antiquity and Byzantium is pleased to announce our next meeting:
Overstriking the Miliaresion:
Byzantine Silver in the Age of Islam
Ph. D. Student, University of Chicago (History)
This presentation investigates the role of Byzantine silver coinage (the miliaresion) during the seventh and eighth centuries and how the practice of overstriking lends insight into the cultural and monetary exchanges between the Byzantine and Islamic worlds.
