Since I am based at Münter University in Germany with on of the cooperation partners of the VICI-project, I am in Leiden only occasionally.
Stefan Riedel (1982) is Post-Doc in the VICI-project Innovating Objects. The Impact of Global Connections and the Formation of the Roman Empire (ca. 200 –30 BC) directed by Prof. Dr. Miguel John Versluys where he is working on the region of Commagene (SE Anatolia). His main focus is on the interaction of global and local stimuli in the development of the material culture in Hellenistic Commagene.
Stefan Riedel holds a PhD from the Ruhr-Universtität Bochum (2016) and an MA from the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster (2010). His PhD-thesis is on The Basileia of Alexandria whereas his MA-thesis was on the representations of Athena on the coins of Pergamum and Ilion.
Before starting at Leiden he worked at the Center for Mediterranean Studies (2010–2014) and at the Institute of Archaeological Studies (2014–2016) at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. Stefan Riedel’s main research interests are the cultural contacts and processes of interaction and transformation in the Hellenistic and Early-Roman Eastern Mediterranean.
