This is one of the wonderful neo-classical coin designs that Moneta strives to present in the Gallery. This Greek Republic issue, and another (Demeter, 10 Drachmai, see 'Next Image) of 1930, are tributes to classical Greek designs. In this case the coin is a Kingdom of Macedon, Antigonos Doson (229-221 BC) AR Tetradrachm, from the mint of Amphipolis, c. 227-225 BC. Here the reverse shows the bearded god Poseidon and the obverse is a type common to the Greeks showing the prow of a galley, a Greek war ship (images reversed here). This is a one-year type of the 2nd Republic is scarce this nice.
