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.
About a year and a half ago, a similar type of Abydos had already been featured as our COM. Back then, it seemed that enough had been said about these coins, and there was no need to return to them again in the near future. Yet recent discoveries casting a new light on this peculiar issue account for this revisit.
The Coin of this Month is presented by Vladimir Stolba
