The bee and the deer shown on this ancient coin are symbols of Artemis, Goddess of the moon and the hunt and the wild feminine divine. The Athenians who came to colonize the Island of Ionia were led by the Muses, (her priestesses) who took the shape of bees. The Muses of Artemis were called “Melissae”, meaning “Bees of the Goddess”. -Brass casting of authentic ancient Ionian coin with antique gold overlay
