FAKE – This coin is a concotion, vaguely following the well-known Syracusan tetradrachms of Agathokles, but replacing Nike, the charioteer, by a wingless lady. It is in fact a typical fake for tourists. There is an amusing and interesting detail, however, the coin is signed. Between the exergue line there is a clear signature in Cyrillic script (Slavei).
