Photographer's Note

Hi friends.
Today I make a daily pause from my posting from the trade mark in Argos Orestikon and I post an old Macedonian coin.

This coin you see here is coinaged about 180-250 B.C. in Apolonia it is today in Bulgaria.
This what you see here images Hercules and the other side I have on WS images God Dionysus
This is a silver coin and here I show you the side where is written in Greek:
The left virgule word: ΣΩΤΗΡΟΣ=SOTIROS=SAVIOR’S
The right virgule word: ΗΡΑΚΛΕΟΥΣ=IRAKLEOUS=HERCULES, in genitive
The down parallel word: ΘΑΣΙΩΝ (in genitive plural) =THASION=THASIANS=habitants of Thasos island.

Hercules in Greek myth is accounted as the primogenitor of Dorians and as a half God was is some regions something like a saint saviour for today.
An other demonstration that Macedonia means Greece and not that what the falsification of the history of my land makes out.

The coin is now as bijou on neck.
These few information I have from a book with the title “Greek coins through the ages” and there are many coins inside and I found also a photo with the almost exactly image.
Sorry for my omission to write it at the beginning that the chain and the around gold is added some years ago from now to be used as a bijou.

here you visit a web site for more ancient coins

Thanks to all
