Archaeological Museum of Ancient Nemea:

From the photographic exhibition of the museum’s numismatic collection:

  1. Silver tetradrachm from Athens (5th century B.C), with a protome of the goddess Athena and an owl with an olive branch on the reverse by the inscription (ΑΘΕ)
  2. Bronze coin of Kleonai (1/12 obol) from the last third of 4th century B.C. It features the head of Herakles wearing the skin of the Nemean lion and a wreath of wild celery on the reverse with the inscription “ΚΛΕΩ”
  3. Silver coin with Alexander the great in the guise of Herakles. At the back there is a depiction of the statue of Zeus in Olympia. It seems that references on coins to Nemea and Olympia were part of the Macedonian panhellenic policy.
  4. Silver coin of Aegina (500-480 B.C). The massive Aeginetan “turtles” with the “incuse” (mark of the striking tool) on the reverse were well known in the antiquity and well represented in Nemea.
  5. Silver coin of Sicyon from the last third of the 4th century B.C. The coin features the very characteristic dove of Sicyon on both sides.
  6. Silver coin of Corinth (525-510 B.C) featuring the front of Pegasus. On the reverse the “incuse” (the tool striking the coin into the obverse die) can be seen.
  7. Silver coin of Arkadia from the second half of the 5th century B.C. It features the olympian statue of Zeus on one side and the bead of Artemis on the reverse surrounded by the inscription “of the Arkadians”
  8. Silver coin of Argos (late 4th century B.C). This is a typical example from this period with the wolf’s head and an Alpha.

Greece is wonderful. There are all kind of places, and I had the opportunity of visiting many during my greek tour this summer. Our first stop was Athens, a surprisingly wonderful city: it’s breathtaking to see these amazing architectures and thinking that they were built so long ago!

"sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. as lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. you just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. you meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. i don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something."

"Where do I get my ideas from? You might as well have asked that of Beethoven. He was goofing around in Germany like everybody else, and all of a sudden this stuff came gushing out of him. It was music. I was goofing around like everybody else in Indiana, and all of a sudden stuff came gushing out. It was disgust with civilization."
