The fourth edition of the Assemani Symposium (Trieste, 25-27 September 2014) focused on the history of studies on Islamic numismatics and welcomed contributions dedicated to other topics related to Oriental numismatics in the broadest sense. The Proceedings gather together 14 papers encompassing archive documents, coins from Syria to China – passing through Central Asia – as well as glass jetons from Sicilian collections, and Arabic and Georgian seals. An ample section is devoted to Simone Assemani’s unpublished correspondence and a special attention is also given to the history of collections of Arabic coins in Italy and abroad. The volume offers a wide perspective on Numismatic research on Oriental materials and its contents will be of interest for every scholar interested in Numismatics.
