Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, with Owl and Amphora Coin, (83-S Version 3) New Style, 133-132 B.C. 29 mm, 12 g. (Larger than US quarter 24 mm) Obverse: Athena with triple-crested Helmet. Reverse: Owl standing on Amphora The New Style Owls retain the Athena and owl iconography of earlier Owls but change in styling dramatically, becoming considerably more elaborate. Athena now wears a triple-crested helmet, with the helmet crest typically appearing in full on the flan, which is larger and wider than with earlier Owls in conformity with other coins of this period. The owl also now sits on an amphora (jug), which refers to Athens' international olive oil trade, and is surrounded by an olive wreath. It is new only in that, as the Roman Empire expanded, Athens found itself under Roman rule and the coin designs changed a little. The 'gladiator' is really a helmeted version of the Greek goddess Athena, goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, just warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill. The 'eagle' is really an owl, standing on an 'urn' or amphora which is symbol of the city of Athens even to this day, as seen in the Greek 10 lepta coin from 1912.
