Roman Provincial Coins from Greece

Athens, Attica, Greece, c. 113 - 112 B.C., New Style Silver Tetradrachm

Click for a larger photo
The "New Style" tetradrachms were issued by Athens as a semi-autonomous city under Roman rule. The new-style Owls are markedly different from the Owls of Periclean Athens or the "eye in profile" Athena head of the Fourth Century. They were struck on thinner, broad flans, typical of the Hellenistic period, with a portrait of Athena that reflected the heroic portraiture of the period. The owl now stands on an amphora, surrounded by magistrates' names and symbols, all within an olive wreath. The amphora is marked with a letter that may indicate the month of production. Letters below the amphora may indicate the source of the silver used in production.
SH62478. Silver tetradrachm, Thompson Athens 673c var. (∆ION), Choice VF, weight 16.867 g, maximum diameter 28.8 mm, die axis 0o, Athens mint, c. 113 - 112 B.C.; obverse helmeted head of Athena Parthenos right, triple-crested helmet decorated with curvilinear ornament on the shell, a griffin right above the raised earpiece, and protomes of horses above the visor; reverse A-ΘE / EYM/APEI/∆HΣ / AΛKI/∆AM / ∆IO, owl standing right on amphora on its side; Triptolemos on right, driving biga of serpents left; B on amphora, ΣO below, all within olive wreath; magistrates Eumareides, Alkidam-, and Dion; SOLD


Athens, Attica, Greece, c. 138 - 137 B.C., New Style Silver Tetradrachm

Click for a larger photo
"New style" tetradrachms were struck by Athens as a semi-autonomous city under Roman rule. Hellenic style replaces the archaic "old-style." The owl is surrounded by magistrates' names and symbols. The letter on the amphora may indicate the month of production. Letters below may indicate the source of the silver. In 1961, Margaret Thompson completed her brilliant study, "The New Style Coinage of Athens." At that time, she estimated there were fewer than 8000 new style tetradrachms "above ground." Thompson catalog numbers indicate the obverse die. Reverses for each obverse are indicated by a letter. For this obverse die, Thompson does not record a reverse with these control letters.
