The Hood Museum of Art’s holdings of ancient coins includes a large number of Greek and Roman specimens, as well as examples of the early coinage of western Asia Minor. The collection is utilized for formal instruction in classical studies, history, art history, and archaeology. The array of imperial coins is especially wide-ranging, demonstrating the rise of portraiture and the use of allegorical figures.
