Within this framework, the tutors and the attendants took a visit to the Benaki Museum. Yannis Stoyas (Researcher Curator, KIKPE Numismatic Collection) gave a presentation of rarities selected from the Collection. The participants were given also the chance to have a hands-on experience involving a number of ancient Greek and Roman Provincial coins.
