The annual meeting of the Austrian Archaeological Institute at Athens took place on 9 June in the library of the Institute. After the report on the activities of the year 2021 by Birgitta Eder, Georg Ladstätter (the long-time director of the OeAI Athens) was officially bidden farewell as he retired in May 2022. Oliver Hülden and Christoph Baier both delivered two touching speeches on this occasion. The brilliant conclusion of the evening was the lecture by Michael Alram on "Coins and Archaeology: The Numismatic Evidence of Tapa Sardar, a Buddhist Site in Afghanistan". Due to the fine weather, the reception afterwards could take place in the garden.
