The diameter of the coin is 23 mm, and it is fairly heavy for its size. The core of the coin is made of bronze and it is covered with silver in order to give the illusion that it is pure silver. One side of the coin depicts the profile of Athena, the patron goddess of Athens, and the other depicts an owl, the goddess’ symbol.
The coin is a Levantine imitation of the Athenian Tetra-Drachma, which was used as universal currency in the 5th and the 4th centuries BCE, very much like the dollar or the euro is used today.
