18)We travel on, riding mules with uncomfortable wooden saddles over the highest hills - it is very dusty and hot, but this coin symbolises our next and maybe our last destination...for everyone is worried by what the Oracle said and we discuss what sort of ransom our famiies could raise were we captured and sold into slavery by pirates!! Everyone knows this coin but a) in what language is the inscription; b) for which city/state is it an abbreviation.......? c) is this the obverse or the reverse.....? d) what or who is depicted on the other side....?
