Corinth Excavations Numismatist- Orestes H. Zervos
Born in Corfu, Greece, Orestes Zervos went to the United States to complete high school. He studied liberal arts and science at Franklin and Marshall College and at Columbia University. He received his Ph. D. (1974) from New York University where his doctoral thesis on Greek Hellenistic coinage was entitled “The Early Coinages of Ptolemy I, 326-304 B.C.” After a long affiliation with the American Numismatic Society, as an associate member (1965) and later as a fellow (1987), he returned to Greece in 1980 to assume the post of numismatist for the Corinth Excavations.
