ATHENS Attica AR Tetradrachm Ancient Silver Color Greek Copy Coin OWL AthenaThis is NOT ANCIENT COIN. They are made of the highest quality, and plated Antique Silver Finish. They are accurately detailed and have been molded from Museum Quality Reproductions. ATHENS ATTICA AR Tetradrachm OBVERSE: Helmeted head of Athena right REVERSE: Owl standing right, head facing, on overturned amphora; to left, eagle standing right on thunderbolt; Gamma on amphora, ΗΡΑ in exergue; all within laurel wreath Helmeted head of Athena onobverse; reverse has owl standing on amphora with winged caduceus at left The most famous of all Greek civic badges – the owl of Athena – occurs at Athens. The goddess Athena is portrayed on the obverse of most Athenian coins, and her inquisitive owl, with its searching eyes, graces the reverse. These coins were a welcome site to merchants in lands as distant as Afghanistan, Egypt and Arabia, for they knew this coin probably came from Athens, even if they could not read the name of the city, which was abbreviated in Greek.
