The owl, as a symbol for wisdom, was the mascot of Athena, and frequently accompanies the goddess as this coin demonstrates. According to myth, Athena, goddess of wisdom and the patron goddess of Athens, even had the ability to take the form of an owl.
The reverse depicts a standing owl within an incuse square, head facing forward, with a crescent moon and olive spray, and “ΑΘΕ”, (of the Athenians). Athena is featured on the obverse wearing a helmet with floral scroll and three olive leaves.
These well preserved ancient silver Tetradrachm are approximately the size of quarter but twice its thickness. We just bought a fresh group out of Europe and are currently graded. All of our ancient coins are certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC Ancients).
