The personality of Josef Smolík (1832–1915) – a mathematician, archaeologist and numismatist – was analysed several times in the past. The first summarizing study on his legacy was published shortly after his death by the corresponding member of the Bohemian Academy of Sciences (Česká akademie pro vědy, slovesnost a umění) Prof Zdeněk Nejedlý in Almanach of this institution printed in 1916. This obituary was written and sent to the editor even at the end of 1915. In a knowledgeable form, Smolík was characterized there as a scholar who – from mathematics and physics via archeology – came to his most essential interest – numismatics.
