  • Denomination: Drachm
  • Authority: City of Apollonia Pontica
  • Date: c. 450 to 400 BCE
  • Design: Gorgon on obverse, anchor on reverse

The Thracian drachm was minted in Apollonia Pontica, named for the god Apollo. The coin features a portrait of a gorgon (like Medusa) on the front, sticking out its tongue and bearing snakes in place of hair. On the reverse is an anchor, due to the city's important role in maritime trade on the coast of the Black Sea.
