I picked up these two greek coins from an estate sale recently. I'm trying to identify exactly what they are. From what I can figure out this one has the head of Herakles on one side, and Zues seated with an eagle in one hand and a septer in the other. Under the eagle there appears to be a bat and a M and underneath the throne there is what appears to be a crown.
I picked up these two greek coins from an estate sale recently. I'm trying to identify exactly what they are. This one is a silver stater coin from Phaistos from what I have found online. Looks like it is Talos on one side and a cretan bull on the other side. It weighs 10.5 grams with the bezel. I am planning on having it tested, does anyone know what the alloy breakdown should be if it is authentic?? Any information would be amazing! Thanks!!
