Comments

The vignette of the Temple of Hera was likely done by E. Perraki, because they worked on Greek notes between 1970 and 1996, and the initials "Ε Π" (E P) visible at the lower-right corner. The image of the Discobolus was likely done by I. Pipinis due to their work on notes from this period, and initials "Ι Π" (I P) visible at the statue's base.


This note includes a vertical security strip approx 34mm from the left edge (viewed on obverse).
