  • Owl

    Ancient Greek symbol of knowledge and

    wisdom.

    In Ancient Greek mythology the owl was a

    creature sacred to Athena, the Goddess of

    Wisdom. Athena used to have a companion

    owl on her shoulder.

    The Athenian Owl was the first currency that

    was widely recognized and used in

    international trade. It is possibly the single most

    influential coin in history, both for its longevity

    (the Athens Owl tetradrachm was minted and

    circulated widely for over 300 years, more than

    any other coin in history), and for its contribution

    to coinage tradition.
