No offence meant, I sincerely thought that this was easier compared to your other riddles and you can see that ciosky replied quite fast.

Here is the coin I got last week 🙂

DE GREGE EPICURI

Però, che siano due occhi o due semi di grano (spighe non direi), non è proprio la stessa cosa! Fra l'altro, in Grecia si vedono spesso grani d'orzo, ma diversi da questi.  E non potrebbero essere due scudi, piuttosto?

Lorenzo Lorenzini (A contribution to the study of the archaic billon coinage of Lesbos, pag.88) li definisce "two human eye design".
