Description

The depiction of a satyr carrying off a nymph in his arms is among the most interesting motifs on ancient Greek coins. These silver coins were minted on the island of Thasos. The ancient island state with its capital of the same name evolved from about 680 BC in the course of Greek expansionist ambitions. As early as the 6th century BC the city and island assumed great importance in the Greek world. The island’s wines were particularly appreciated.

On Thasos there were mints which were among the earliest in the Greek world. Precious metal mining excavated over 7 tons of silver at the end of the 6th century BC. This silver was minted into silver Stater coins, which were largely intended for trade. On the obverse they depict Silenus (the oldest of the satyrs), who is carrying off a struggling maenad (a nymph of Dionysus). An incuse square can be seen on the reverse.
