November 3, 2018 · 10:00 am5:30 pm · 202 Jones

Sharmin and Bijan Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Iran and Persian Gulf Studies

This is a workshop concentrating on the history and coinage of late antique Iran and Central Asia, spanning from the foundation of the Sasanian Empire in 224 CE to the establishment of the Islamic Caliphate in East Iran in the eighth century.

Presenters, including some of the most distinguished historians and numismatists of the period, will cover various aspects of the history, with a focus on coinage and coin production. Princeton’s newly acquired and catalogued collection of Sasanian and related coins will also be presented to the campus community as an exciting tool for research in late antique history.

The workshop is free and open to the public with RSVP required to iran@princeton.edu by 10/25.

Co-sponsored by Princeton University Library’s Division of Rare Books and Special Collections
