From the Trausnitz Collection, acquired prior to 2007.

In mythology, the Calydonian boar was sent to ravage the Aetolian hinterland due to King Oeneus' neglecting to pay proper respects to the goddess Diana. The boar destroyed the crops and terrorized the people, forcing them to shelter behind their city walls. With starvation ensuing, a hunt was organized in which all of Greece's heroes, except Herakles, took part. Atalanta, the only female hero, took the signal honor of making the first wound, piercing the beasts' side with an arrow. While the significance of the design on this coin is lost to us, it can be assumed that Hosidius either claimed descent from one of the heroes involved in the hunt (perhaps from Atalanta herself), or had some other connection to Aetolia and the goddess Diana.
