Greek Silver & Bronze
ACARNANIA, Anactorion (Colony of Corinth), (350-300 B.C.), silver stater, (8.465 grams), obv. Pegasos with pointed wing flying to left, AN monogram below, rev. head of Athena to right in Corinthian helmet over a leather cap, omphalos and AN monogram behind head, (cf.S.2248, Calciati 36, BMC 42-45, SNG Cop. 392). Tight flan, good very fine/very fine and rare.
The omphalos stone at Delphi was regarded as the 'navel' or centre of the earth. A later carved stone is currently displayed at that site. Its representation on this coin as a additional symbol is probably linked to the close proximity of the city Anactorium to Delphi.
