Item description

APOLLO - From Greece to Pompeii Apollo is one of the most important of the Olympian gods. The son of Zeus and Leto, Apollo is described as “the most Greek of all gods.” Apollo represents the ideal of athletic youth portrayed in Greek and Roman religion, art, and literature. Apollo is the god of light and the sun, truth and prophecy, medicine and healing, music, poetry, and the arts. He represents harmony, order, and reason. Greek Coins of Apollo Four replicas of ancient Greek coins represent the variety of portraits of Apollo. These include: Ionian Tetradrachm of Klatomenai COPY (480 to 450 B.C.) The obverse head of Apollo with three quarters face to left; reverse shows a swan facing left with wings spread. (Sear 4315) Macedonian Stater of Phillip II COPY (369 to 336 B.C.) The obverse of this gold coin shows the head of Apollo facing right. The reverse shows a galloping biga. (Sear 6663) Tetradrachm of Katana COPY (420 to 404 B.C.) The obverse shows Apollo with short hair facing left and a laurel sprig. The reverse shows slow biga right with Nike crowning the horses. (Sear 768) Leontinoi Tetradrachm COPY (425 to 422 B.C.) Obverse shows radiated head of Apollo facing right, a fine portrait. Reverse shows lion head facing right with mouth open; three corn grains and fish surrounding the lion. (Sear 838) T The Roman Apollo Apollo was the prophetic deity at Delphi. In the 5th Century B.C., tradition says the early kings of Rome traveled to Greece to consult the Oracle of Delphi. By 430 B.C., a Roman temple to Apollo existed in Rome. Apollo was considered one of the three protector gods of Pompeii, along with Venus and Jupiter, and a temple to him may have existed as early as the 6th century B.C. The statue of Apollo pictured with this set of coins is a fine example of Roman art at its best. You are in the REPRODUCTION section. These pieces are NOT ancient coins.
