IONIA, Phokaia. Circa 521-478 BC. AR Tetartemorion. Head of griffin left / Incuse punch. Cf. SNG Kayhan 514–6 (hemidrachms) and 1428 (diobol). It is possible that this issue may belong to Abdera or Teos, both of which also issued early silver coins with griffins on the obverse.

I like the grasshopper! Not something you often see on an ancient coin.

That's a nice coin, but you skipped all of page three. There's no griffin on the coin of Alexandria Troas that I posted. I guess you could change the link to "horse."

It seems like the Greeks get caught up in horses, and the Romans get caught up in Faustinas. 🙂
