Fake Silver Half Obol
0.62 gm, 7.75 mm
Obv.: Anchor with loop eye and dots below
Rev: Swastika with arms (fish, crayfish?) bent left, dot in center, two spikes in each sector
Topalov Apollonia p. 568, 13; HGC 3, 1325 (obol);

Reasons to believe fake: fabric appears wrong; shape of anchor off, flukes curved wrong; stock/flukes carved on top of shaft instead of behind; one dot instead of four for this size coin; artificial toning; seller had many other fakes listed as well.

Greece, Athens - The Gate of Schliemann's House - Athens237 viewsNot exactly an ancient site but as the home of the Greek Numismatic Museum it houses one of the great collections of ancient coins .... a must see on any visit to Athens.

This is photo is of one of the wrought iron gates of Schliemann’s Athenian mansion constructed in 1878/9. The swastika motif derives from his Trojan excavations and borders a design of winged sphinxes and acanthus leaves capped by an owl with spread wings.

Obv.: Convex globular surface.
Rev.: Rectangular incuse punch.

Other than the literary tradition ascribing the origin of coinage to the kings of Lydia, there is little evidence for a more exact chronology of early Greek coinage. The tradition, buttressed by limited archaeological studies, does confirm Asia Minor as the place of origin, most likely Lydia or Ionia, and a date somewhere around 650 BC. The alloy used, a mixture of gold and silver known to the Greeks as elektron was based on the natural ore found in nugget form in many river-beds in the region. The earliest coins were of a globular shape and without design in imitation of this natural form; later, simple striated and punched patterns of squares, rectangles and swastikas were included.

Moneyer: Leofthegn
Mint: York (presumably)

Pirie 231, Phase II Group Ai
O: +EDELRED R
R: +LEOFDEJN
Motif: 1/6b

Ah, Leothegn, the most creative of the Northumbrian moneyers. He minted coin in great number, and was the most prolific moneyer of Aethelred II's first reign. He is not known to have coined for any other monarchs. Leofthegn is known for his "special motifs," select obverse and reverse designs that differ from the standard plain cross or group of pellets. Presumably he was given some artistic freedom by the king, which other moneyers seemed not to have. His various special designs include alpha, omega, saltire, swastika, bullseye circles, asterisk, and a remarkable design featuring a dismally drawn "hound" creature on the reverse. The hound, though not beautiful by the art standard of any generation, was nonetheless the first animal design to be found on Northumbrian coins since the time of Alchred almost a century earlier.

This coin is one of Leofthegn's more "boring" designs, featuring a bullseye of concentric circles on the reverse.
