On Nov. 30, students in my History of Ancient Greece class had an opportunity to view a rare and extensive Greek coin collection thanks to SLS alumni parent Cliff Fox (P‘10, P’15). This was a unique opportunity for our St. Luke’s students to have a tactile connection with the ancient past, bringing to life some elements of their studies.

Fox started the class with a general overview of Greek coins, touching on some of the themes we see in Greek coinage—both major and minor deities or focusing on a particular Greek town or polis. Students were then invited to view coins from the Greek world that spanned centuries, including some exceptional coins from Athens and Syracuse. Fox also brought some of his Roman coins for comparison.
