  • Towns and Times of Philosophers

    When I actively collected, I was inspired by the Carl Sagan Cosmos episode "Backbone of the Night" to acquire coins from the lifetimes of philosophers. I had about 50 names linked to coins, from Thales of Miletus to Hypatia of Alexandria.

    Among them was this:
    Syrakusa 474-450 BCE.
    AR Litra.
    obv: Artemis Arethusa / rev: Cuttlefish
    Alfoeldi 136 "Obol"; Beohringer 467 or 451;
    0.65 grams
