What a Relief!

Thousands of years ago the Greeks and Romans feared the gods and goddesses they created. Classical Greek art portrays these deities as powerful beings that are to be respected and worshiped. This coin perfectly honors the Greek god Ares and the power he was believed to possess; the scene on the reverse shows a battle with Ares, fully armored, at the forefront charging, seemingly right off the coin. He brandishes a sword and a shield which has a roaring lion, a symbol of strength and courage. Behind Ares looms a Greek temple, and an army of men loyally following him to war.
