NATIONAL HELLENIC RESEARCH FOUNDATION
Institute of Historical Research, Section of Greek and Roman Antiquity. Address: 48 Vassileos Konstantinou Avenue, GR- 11 635, Athens, Greece
The Section of Greek and Roman Antiquity of the Institute of Historical Research of the NHRF focuses on the study of various theme and geographical areas, as well as different periods of time in the course of antiquity, and especially on those sectors, where the breach or delay of scientific research has left space for some innovative contribution on behalf of Greece to the international scientific study of Archaeology. The main goal is to reignite archaeological research through the study of all possible aspects of antiquity, starting from prehistoric times until the end of the ancient world in the 6th century AD, based on diverse genres of written sources and material remnants. What most contributes to the support of the research carried out by the scientific team of the Section, as well as by experts from the national and international scientific community, is the strengthening of the documentation infrastructure that can be found on the prolific archive of the Section, such as the archive of prints of Greek and Latin inscriptions of the Greek territory, the monetary file of casts of various regions and many more.
