Antoine is one of the first contributors to Ancient History Encyclopedia. He's fascinated with both video games and history, and studied Ancient Times at the University of Strasbourg until 2011. He's a specialist in numismatics and Central Asia in hellenistic and imperial times, with his master's thesis on Hellenism and acculturation phenomena in Central Asia through numismatics (250 BC - 150 AD). He also is an active member of the Europa Barbarorum project, mods of the Total War games which proposes the most historical accuracy and gaming depth possible with the engines. Now making exams to work in libraries, he still keeps the research side, by writing articles, and through a soon-launched association.
