The annual 2015 meeting in the Netherlands
Saturday October 17th 2015
Leiden University, Cleveringaplaats 1 at Leiden
We hope to welcome as many members as in previous years.
On Saturday October 17th 2015, the annual ONS-meeting in the Netherlands will be held at the premises of the |
Leiden University, Cleveringaplaats 1 at Leiden.
Again a number of different subjects will be covered. As previous years, we propose to end the day with a diner in an oriental atmosphere and again as previous year we have opted for the speciality restaurant Asian Palace. We hope that again many people will attend the ONS-meeting and stimulate the mutual contact among the members.
The tentative program will be:
|09.30 - 10.15 h
Welcome with coffee/tea at the restaurant ‘Pakhuis’ (former Camino Real), Doelensteeg 8, which is just a short distance from the University entrance. At 10.15 h. we will proceed from there to the lecture room at the University.
|10.30 - 12.30 h
Lectures will be held in one of the lecture rooms of the University. Location will be indicated in the entrance hall of the University. |
Some of the topics of the meeting will be on the Coinage of the kingdom of
Commagene by Rudy Dillen and Arab-Byzantine coinage by Frank Hendriks.
Dr. Wybrand op den Velde will give a presentation of the book ‘Cast Korean
Coins and Charms’ which he as co-author with David Hartill, has published
recently. A few copies may be available from the co-author on the spot.
There will still be room for additional short papers, questions, news items, etc. Members are invited to come forward with it. A provisional paper on an Indian subject is kept on hand by me.
