Off-round Ancient Coin with Owl of Athena


The Athenian "owl" silver tetradrachm is unquestionably one of the most influential coins of all time.  During the fifth century BC, when Athens emerged as the greatest of all Greek cities, owls were the most widely used international coin and helped to spread Greek culture throughout the Mediterranean world.  This tetradrachm bears the helmeted head of Athena on one side and the two symbols of the goddess, an olive branch and an owl, on the reverse.
