Coin of Athena (490-486 BC), B.M. Paris medal cabinet. The Greeks were the inventors of coinage, for while it is true that in Egypt and Mesopotamia metal bars and ingots were used for exchange, the merchant cities of Ionia were the first to stamp a piece of metal with a characteristic sign of its purity, weight and value, in the course of the 7th century BC. On this tetradrachm, originally made of silver and minted towards the end of the 7th century BC, the tetradrachm was stamped with a sign of purity, weight and value. On this tetradrachm, originally of silver, minted towards the end of the 5th century BC, the goddess Athena, the goddess of reason, is depicted in profile with almond-shaped eyes in the oriental style, emphasising the ingenious resolution of the silver pendant.
