Teos Griffin Head Silver Fractions, c. 540 - 449 B.C.

Teos was a flourishing seaport until about 540 B.C., when the Persian emperor Cyrus the Great invaded Lydia and Ionia. The town survived but most of the citizens fled to the newly founded colonies of Abdera and Phanagoria. These tiny silver coins were struck after the Persian invasion.


All with the types:
Obverse: Griffin head right
Reverse: Quadrapartite incuse square

Not entirely new but newly completed.
