Theme-in-Context Day

When:Fr 23-09-2022

This year's OIKOS TiC-day will focus on the recently discovered (or rather, seized by the police) bronze tablet which can be dated to the very beginning of the reign of Tiberius.


PhD and ReMA students of OIKOS receive 1 EC for preparing and attending the TiC-day. Literature will be sent to registered participants beforehand.


During the day, a number of speakers will discuss different aspects of the new document, in the context of other sources for the early reign of Tiberius.
