Comments

Thrace Maroneia (Circa 400-350 BC)
Bronze coin of Ancient Greece
These 2,300 year-old coins advertised the wealth and wine of Maroneia, the same city Homer spoke of in The Odyssey. It was the strong wine of Maroneia that wily Odysseus used to make the Cyclops drunk, permitting his escape from the Cyclops's cave! The city of Maroneia was noted for its fine wine and horses. A prancing horse is on the obverse and grape vines within a square are on the reverse. A324V Littleton Coin Company, Inc.
