Description

This type of coin, the decadrachms, are one of the most beautiful and recognized in the ancient world and were minted by Dionysius I of Syracuse (405-367 BC). The Decadracmas were made of silver and came to serve not only as monetary exchange but also as a collector's item.

On its obverse it represents the nymph Arethusa, daughter of the river god Arcadius and famous hunter, on its reverse, a young naked Heracles, fighting against the Nemean lion. The face of Arethusa was the most appreciated of antiquity, all over the Mediterranean basin mints with her face were made.
