Thrace, the land of Orpheus and Euridice, is a historical landscape bounded by the river
Strymon to the west, by the Euxine to the east, by the Hellespont to the south and by the Haimos to the north.
This melting pot of cultures shows not only famous funeral mounds of Thracian kings,
but also an extremely rich, multi-variant and continual Greek coinage.
August means vacation, finally time to devote yourself to the very small, seemingly irrelevant motifs sometimes found on coins — the symbols. These small images are often found on the edge of the primary motif on Greek coins and are interpreted with a constant coin image in such a way that, like letters and monograms, they serve to differentiate emissions from one another.
