Within this framework a visit took place at the Benaki Museum, so that the group of attendants would participate in a special seminar. At the Museum’s auditorium there was held a presentation of the KIKPE Numismatic Collection. Yannis Stoyas (Researcher/Curator) and Stelios Damigos (historian of antiquity) discussed a series of acquisitions from the Collection, while the participants were given also the chance to have a hands-on experience with the selected items.
