[Autom. eng. transl.] In the last decade, Roman 'medalistic' production has enjoyed a significant revival of interest, especially following the publication in 2010 and 2019, by Peter Franz Mittag, of the first and second volumes of "Römische Medaillons" , in which the specimens issued by Cesare to Antonino Pio are presented and discussed. This cataloging work has been flanked by more traditional studies, mostly focused on iconographic aspects, and others in which more innovative study methodologies are explored, such as the application of metallographic analyzes, the analysis of the macro and micro context. of tempering, the mapping of minting bonds. The contribution illustrates these new approaches, highlighting their potential and limitations.
