Athens Athena Tetradrachm
135 – 5 B.C.

Athens, in Attica, on the Saronic Gulf in southern Greece.

This new style of the Athenian coin was struck in the second century during Athens’s decline due to the growing power of Rome.

Obverse: – Head of Athena in an Athenian helmet.

Athena was Greek mythology’s goddess of wisdom, warfare, and crafts.

Reverse: – Owl standing on Panathenaic Amphora

The owl was considered a symbol of wisdom, intelligence, and foresight, reflecting Athena’s attributes as a goddess. The Panathenaic Amphora is an ancient Greek pottery used to hold olive oil, another symbol of Athens, which stands for the city’s famous olive oil production.

Diameter: 29 mm

Material: Silver-plated lead-free pewter with patina, made in the USA.
Packaged in a coin collecting flip with the description of the coin printed on the flip insert.
