What do you guys think about this beauty


Recommended Posts

The Owl and the Alexander tetradrachms are very common, the\y were the two major trade coinages of the latter 5th and latter 4th centuries B.C. respectivekly. The owl is beautiful, comes from Athens the birthplace of philosopphy and democracy, and represents the spread of coinage throughout the Greek world. Alexander conquered Persia and those conquests monetized Persia, Babylon, and Egypt, the older kingdoms that had resisted the modern invention of coinage.
