New exhibition showcases evolution of coinage


A visitor looks at coins and other artifacts on display in the exhibition "Money: Tangible Symbols in Ancient Greece" at the Museum of Cycladic Art in central Athens Thursday. The show, organized in cooperation with the Alpha Bank Numismatic Collection, takes visitors from the simplest forms of coinage through the evolution of currency, while at the same time shedding light on ancient Greek banking practices. The display, which also features items from Italian, French and British collections, will be open to the public until April 15, 2018. [ANA-MPA]
