A Gorgoneion was a horror-creating apotropaic Gorgon head
pendant. The name derives from the Greek word gorgos, which means
"dreadful". Zeus, Athena, Hellenistic kings and Roman Emperors wore
Gorgoneion for protection. Images of the Gorgons were also put upon objects
and buildings for protection.
Possibly, that coin is a imitation on the official Parion issue
(indicates the low weight)!
