April's Notes: Greek coins are tiny works of art in their own right - and the Tetrobols of Histiaia speak to the art and myth of Ancient Greece. This coin has a finely detailed portrait with the wreath and even the earring clearly visible - and on the reverse you wee the sails of the galley!
Histiaia was beloved by the people of her namesake town, and belief in her would persist until the 12th century. Nymphs like Histiaia are immortalized in literature, art and mythology, and are the great-great grandmothers of European fairies and elves.
Here, in this shinning silver tetrobol dated from 340 – 146 BC, Histiaia is again immortalized in another work of art – an Ancient Greek coin with her portrait on one side, and sitting in a galley ready for sail on the other.
