[Autom. eng. transl.] The essay outlines the evolution of the Greek coin figurative theme with regard to the appearance of depictions of gods and living beings. The images of Zeus, Apollo, Dionysus, Heracles and Arethusa are then examined on emissions from the ticks of Elis, of the calcidic alloy, of Leontinoi, of Naxos, of Thasos, of Syracuse. Regarding the depictions of living beings, an excursus is outlined from the depictions of the Great King on the issues of Daric to the portraits of Hellenistic kings and queens.
