Athena was the patron goddess of Athens in Ancient Greece; and is known as the Goddess of Wisdom and Strategic Warfare (amongst other attributes). This silver tetradrachm features the Owl of Wisdom often associated with her. It has the inscription AOE on the right, meaning "of the Athenians". The obverse shows Athena herself in decorated helmet. The dot on her cheek was purposeful, and was most likely done by a treasurer when counting coinage.
