Urban Development, Housing and Living Conditions in Ancient Priene

As part of the project "Urban Development, Housing and Living Conditions in Ancient Priene", funded by the DFG (German Research Foundation) and in cooperation with the Archaeological Institute at Universität Frankfurt am Main (Prof. Dr. Wolf Rack), the Münzkabinett is currently analysing coins discovered in the latest excavations of the ancient city of Priene (west Turkey) – one of the most important sites for the research of Greek-Roman culture in the eastern Mediterranean region.

The project aims to draw conclusions about the use of bronze currency and the chronology of coins during the mid-Hellenistic period in the Maeander valley.
