When she told me about it I was only half listening and the thought of a zoo in Athens made me think of the small zoo in the National Gardens which has a handful of fairly common animals that look pretty unhappy and a population of ducks that have taken over every cage.

 (30) Athens, Attica (Greece)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Athenian coinage, which began relatively early, at first consisted of coins now known by the German term Wappenmünzen or "heraldic coins," because they depicted a wide range of types once thought to be emblems of powerful Athenian families, although a number of other explanations for the different types have now been put forward.
These coins, which were not issued in large numbers and which rarely circulated outside Attica, were replaced toward the end of the sixth century B.C. by a new type of coinage, consisting primarily of tetradrachms, which became the most authoritative coinage of Classical Greece.
In contrast to the constantly changing types of the Wappenmünzen, the new coins consistently depicted Athena, the patron goddess of Athens, on the obverse and her attribute the owl, a sprig of olive, and a crescent moon on the reverse.
