Tracce della tesaurizzazione monetaria d’età antica nell’esposizione archeologica al Castello Rosso di Tripoli (Libia)
The article focuses on the numismatic exhibition at the Museum of the Red Castle in Tripoli, which has about 2000 specimens. It was possible to record in detail the ancient part of this exhibition in 2009, before the “Arab Spring”. The exhibition certainly includes at least two hoards of sestertii from the II-III century AD and another treasure of nummi from the end of the V century; most of the remaining coins almost certainly come from other Punic and Roman imperial hoards, of which there are possible traces in literature. The study of this material, in addition to recording the charateristics of coin hoarding in Tripolitania between the third century BC and the fifth century AD, literally describes a heritage whose fate is currently unknown.
