Round table session held at the XV International Numismatic Congress, Sicily, 22 September 2015. Coin finds in religious contexts open a significant number of questions concerning the conception and use of coins and money, in different geographical and temporal settings. Votive offerings, ritual minting and donations are but a few examples of how coins were, and still are, used as material mediators between humans and gods. In the Divina Moneta Round Table, the use of coins and money for religious purposes was discussed out from an understanding of coins’ particular material aspects (such as metal, size or iconography) in combination with their connotations in light of different socio-cultural phenomena (such as abundance, kingship or protection).

Bloggside har passert 1000 unike besøkende i løpet av påskehøytiden. Målingene begynte i september forrige år. November var den travleste måneden så langt. Uansett, det er vel betydelig flere enn det som vanligvis leser våre skriverier i tradisjonelle numismatiske, arkeologiske og historiske kanaler.

Vel blåst!
