ATHENS AND SPARTA

  1. 1. The owl is an ancient symbol of the wisdom of Athens and is associated with Athena. It appeared on coins in Athens as early as 520 BC. The coins were called “glaukes” – after “glaux” the ancient Greek for owl. This antique design is the current design for the contemporary Greek 1-Euro coin. The design is actually an image of an old Athenian coin… you can see the irregular stamp outline, the owl and an olive branch.
  2. 2. • The letter lambda (Λ), standing for Laconia or Lacedaemon, which was painted on the Spartans' shields, was first adopted in the 420s BC, and quickly became a widely known Spartan symbol.
