NUMISMATIC COLLECTION

The Alpha Bank Numismatic Collection is considered one of the most important ones worldwide, comprising 11,000 coins from the ancient Greek world. A few extremely rare items stand out among them, representing unique specimens of ancient engraving art. The Collection spans a period from the end of the 7th century BC and the invention of coinage, to the 3rd century AD and the termination of coin production in the cities of the Roman Empire. Also, the Collection includes a number of Roman and Byzantine coins. The primary aim of the Collection is to highlight the widespread dissemination of Greek culture and its influence on the ancient world. To this end, the Numismatic Collection organizes exhibitions and lectures, conducts educational programs, participates in academic symposiums and international conferences, and produces relevant publications.
