The coinage of Thasos in the first half of the 5th century must have been enormous: they appear all over the eastern Mediterranean area and are found as far east as Afghanistan. The coins were made in order to utilize the silver from the island’s mines: not only were the coins used to pay expenses, they were also a convenient way to export bullion. The scene on the obverse refers to the Dionysiac revels that accompanied the island’s other great speciality, the wine for which Thasos was also famous
