Greece 2013: Akademeia of Plato
This coin celebrates the Academy of Plato – a Philosopher school in Athens, the oldest institute of Greece of this kind. Plato teached philosophical and scientific classes on his private domain in the nord-west of Athens, which was close to the grounds of the hero Akademos, so they called the school “Akademeia”. This is where the modern word “Academy” comes from.
