Introduction. Here you will find a sample selection of tokens.


Some 1,000 tokens have been excavated in Athens in general and in the Athenian Agora in particular.

Hundreds are kept in museums across Europe as a result of major private collections, such as the Meletopoulos, the Hallerstein, the Heldreich and the Froehner collection, which were assembled in the 19th century.

Since that time, research has made little progress. This online exhibition aims to inspire further thoughts and provide incentive to a fresh approach.
