Abstract

In recent years, Islamic numismatics has known a renewed vitality, due to the publication of corpora, collection catalogues, essays on the chronology of mint-output and mint activity (see the Survey of Numismatic Research presented in Taormina at the occasion of the XV International Numismatic Congress, but also the review by Arianna D’Ottone Rambach that has appeared in Comunicazione). However, we believe that coin finds and hoards from archaeological contexts are one of the aspects least studied in the field of Islamic numismatics. Whilst it is a well-established trend of research in Ancient and Medieval numismatics, the study and the analysis of the function of Islamic coins in archaeological contexts deserve more attention. Therefore, the theme to which the next edition of the Simone Assemani Symposium will be dedicated is: Islamic coins in archaeological context: coin finds, coin circulation
