Greek Coin Pack - Athens
Quantity:  £2.45

Greece started to emerge from the Dark Ages in the eighth century B.C. The Ancient Greeks lived in mainland Greece and the Greek islands, but as the population expanded, also in what is now Turkey, and in the colonies scattered around the Mediterranean Sea coast. There were Greeks in Italy, Sicily, North Africa and as far west as France. Sailing the sea to trade and find new land, Greeks took their way of life to many places.

There was not one country called Greece. Instead, there were small ‘city-states’. Each city-state had its own government. Sometimes the city-states fought one another, sometimes they joined together. Athens, Sparta, Corinth and Olympia were four of the largest city-states.

This reproduction Athens Stater coin was struck during the great siege of Athens in 296 BC from gold stripped from the statue of Athena in the Parthenon.

The coin is held in a clear plastic blister and is supplied in full colour pamphlet style packaging, complete with images and historical information of both the coin and the ancient Greeks.
