The word solecism, meaning a grammatical mistake or absurdity, was invented by the ancient Athenians to describe the Greek dialect spoken in Soloi, which they thought was a corrupt version of Attic.

Perhaps the beautiful bunch of grapes on this coin gives us a hint as to why the people of Soloi made so many mistakes in speaking.

Pliny records that much wine was produced in Cilicia and Soloi’s standard type of a bunch of grapes implies that some of it was certainly made here.

The Amazons were a tribe of female warriors who supposedly originated in northern Asia Minor. They supposedly removed their right breasts in order to be better able to throw javelins and draw their bows, but this is never shown in works of art.

The engraver of this coin got out of the problem by showing the Amazon from behind, with only her left breast visible under her arm. Precisely why she appears on the coinage of Soloi is unknown and probably relates to a local myth.

Amazons were represented in ancient art frequently, among others, by Polykleitos and Phidias. Nevertheless Amazons appear very rarely on coins. The relationship between Soloi and the Amazons remains enigmatic.
