Ar Silver coin, from Pamphylia Ca. 370 to 333 BC
The obverse features two naked athletes wrestling, grasping each other by the arms. The reverse features a slinger, advancing right, about to discharge his sling. In a field to the right, triskeles of human legs.
This coin is a tribute to the Wrestlers that participated in the Ancient Olympics. Like the modern sport, an athlete needed to throw his opponent on the ground, landing on a hip, shoulder, or back for a fair fall. 3 throws were necessary to win a match. Attacks such as breaking your opponent's fingers were permitted in the ancient arena. Biting was not allowed, and genital holds were also illegal.
