Trade in the ancient world was primarily concentrated in two areas either along the coast of the Mediterranean or along the Silk Road. Many coins of the Greek cities would trade eastward to ancient India and China along this network and as such they were tested in many of the cities by merchants trying to check the Silver content. This Athenian Owl bears test cuts as well as a purity stamp which is not unlike other examples used during the period by ancient Jewish merchants. These coins were still in circulation during the ministry of Christ and these uncommon trade coins are a rare find.
