Abstract

Thanks to the gradual advancements of antiquarian erudition that brought together different academic disciplines, scholars from all over Europe were able to comprehend the ancient Roman colony and the specific coin type associated with this institution. The study of the Roman colony was a cultural process that had a strong impact on sixteenth-century intellectual life leaving its mark on epistolary exchanges and influencing both numismatic scholarship and contemporary artworks. The Renaissance interest in Roman colonial coinage fully embraced the spirit of humanistic antiquarianism, showing how numismatists interacted with the multiform cultural experiences of the time.
