6,5% loan, 1922; certificate of 1 bond of 100 Drachmes; print: Bradbury Wilkinson & Co., U.K.; blue print, 1 coupon still attached, see picture of  front and backside, The frontside shows a crowned coat of arms, flanked by 2 men with a club, probably Hercules. The backside shows a 6 by 4 cm statue of Nike, the goddess of Victory (daughter of Styx, who was a daughter of the Titan Oceanus). The famous American sport shoe company NIKE, was named after this goddess; The statue depicted on the back is a replica of the famous sculpture of Nike made in 421 B.C. by the Greek sculptor Paionios. As can be seen on this photograph, the original sculpture is badly damaged, but the (very small) replica that is depicted on this bond can be seen in the right lower corner of the photo. The goddess is landing on a triangular pillar: the rucks of her cloths suggest the speed with which she lands. (source: Zadoks, 1954, p. 65), condition VF-EF, 25 Euro.
