5E Numismatic Caesar: Using Coins in the Latin Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As in so many realms of Roman politics, military affairs, and public relations, Julius Caesar was also an innovator and envelop-pusher with the currency that passed through Roman hands and that thereby offered one of the most ubiquitous and important means of image-making in the Republic. Most famously, with a denarius issued in 44 BCE, his was the first portrait of a living figure to be struck on coinage.

This session introduces and analyzes several coins minted during Caesar’s rise to power and thus opens a tangible view into Roman history for instructors and students alike that complements what they encounter in their Latin texts. The presentation broadens from close-range case studies to concrete pedagogical strategies before opening the floor to further brainstorming and idea-sharing among attendees.
