Laser cleaning of ancient coins

Briefly noted: An 8-year-old paper by Eleni Drakaki, Andreas Karydas, et al: “Evaluation of laser cleaning of ancient Greek, Roman and Byzantine coins”. Successful results are claimed, sometimes in conjunction with mechanical cleaning.

The article is a followup to an earlier paper, “Laser cleaning on Roman coins”. The image for this post comes from the first paper.
