Product Description

This incredible set shows the mighty legends of the Griffin, Delphin, and Heifer from Greek lore. The griffin, or gryps, is a beast with the head and wings of an eagle fused to the body of a lion. On this silver diobol from Ionia, Teos dating to 320-294 BCE, a griffin sits with its forepaw raised. Twin delphins, Dolphin-shaped sea demons in the service of Poseidon, god of the sea grace this bronze unit from Syracuse around 275-215 BCE. Zeus transformed Io, princess of Argive and his lover, into a heifer to protect her. This silver drachm from Illyria, Apollonia from 229-100 BCE features a heifer. This set is perfect for Greek history fans, and comes with a story card and certificate of authenticity. These ancient coins are thousands of years old and are like having a personal museum collection!

  • Certificate of authenticity
  • Millennia old
  • Featuring three mythological beasts
