2€ CC 2010 - 2.500th anniversary of the Battle of Marathon

Postby So Many Euros » 21 Jun 2010, 21:50

From the website of the European Commission:

The coin commemorates the 2.500th anniversary of the Battle of Marathon. The centre of the coin shows a synthesis of a shield and a runner/warrior symbolizing the battle for freedom and the noble ideals derived from the battle of Marathon. The bird on the shield symbolizes the birth of western civilization in its present form.

I think the Greek mint have their arithemetic wrong.

Because 1 BC is followed by 1 AD without a 0 this is only the 2499th anniversary of 490 BC
