Ancient Greek Silver Akragas Didrachm Crab Coin - Sicily 480 B.c. For Sale

Ancient Greek Silver Akragas Didrachm Crab Coin - Sicily 480 B.c.

An ancient Greek silver didrachm from Akragas, Sicily, stuck circa 495 - 480 B.C.

The obverse (image ii) with sea eagle standing left. The legend reading:

AKRA[CAΣ]

"Of Akragas"

The reverse (image i) with open clawed crab within shallow incuse circle. Corinthian helmet below.

The ancient city of Akragas was founded by colonists from Gela in around 580 B.C. and grew to become a wealthy and important city throughout the 5th Century. Akragas began to issue her iconic coinage a few decades later and chose the eagle, a symbol of the Father of the Gods, Zeus, to whom a large temple was dedicated in Akragas, as their obverse depiction. The reverse shows a freshwater crab, likely a popular delicacy harvested in the region.
