Podcast Season 2 Episode 8 – Breaking the Mold: Quasi-Official Coinage in Roman Egypt with Irene Soto Marín

On this episode of the Peopling the Past podcast, we are joined by Dr. Irene Soto Marín, an assistant professor of classical studies at the University of Michigan and the assistant curator of numismatics at the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology.

Listen in, as she discusses the role of Quasi-Official Coinage in Roman Egypt, notably coins produced by state agents outside of the official mint in Alexandria in order to respond to local needs.
