Rx: ΑΘΕ Owl standing right, head front, olive twig and crescent in upper left field, all within incuse square. Cf. SNG Copenhagen 108. This tetradrachm shows that people around the world knew that Athenian tetradrachms were a standard issue of money, thus coins like this were minted outside of Athens at Athenian weight and passed as currency even though they were not Athenian issues. EF.
