Silver coin from Apollonia and Dyrrhachium with a cow and suckling calf on the obverse and a double stellate pattern on the reverse taken from Corcyrean prototypes.
The cow/calf fertility symbol is of European origin. The geometrical pattern is most probably a schematic representation of the two stars of the Dioscuri. Other explanations include backgammon (for the resemblance of the pattern to the board of the popular game).
