About Us

The collection of coins of the Archaeological Seminar of the Philipps-University Marburg comprises about 1000 Greek and Roman coins. It is part of the Antikensammlung, which was founded in 1878 by Ludwig von Sybel (1846-1929), Professor of Classical Archaeology. A special enrichment to the collection is the donation from 2017 by Hans-Werner Ritter of nearly 300 well-preserved coins from all eras and regions of Ancient Antiquity.
