Historical background


(380-300 BC)

Clazomene, located in the southern peninsula of the Gulf of Smyrna, was placed under the protection of Apollo, protector of the herds. The swan on the reverse seems to have been a play on words with the name of the city. At the mouth of the Hermos delta, Clazomene was a breeding region. Anaxagoras was from Clazomene.
