According to the ANS E-NEWS for April 2009,
Elizabeth Hahn, Librarian of the American Numismatic Society, will be speaking about the ANS Library and highlights in the collections during the Chicago Coin Club Meeting on April 25, 2009, 1pm at the Chicago International Coin Fair (CICF), Crown Plaza Chicago O’Hare, 5440 North River Road, Rosemont, IL.
The CICF web site provides this information about the talk:
Featured Speaker: Elizabeth Hahn, Librarian of the American Numismatic Society, on Homer’s Thrinakia: The ANS Library, Sicilian History and Early Numismatic Literature
This talk will use Homer’s mention of the island “thrinakia,” identified as the island of Sicily, as a starting point to discuss the attraction of Sicily and in particular the numerous ancient sites that are preserved throughout the island.
Like the three promontories of Sicily, this talk will have three points that discuss the ANS Library collections, Sicilian history, and early numismatic literature. Examples of early Sicilian numismatic literature will be drawn from the ANS Library in an effort to emphasize the rich and varied nature of the collections.
Orville, Jacques Philippe d'. Sicula quibus Siciliae veteris rudera... Amseterdam, 1764.
