The Lydia Lion is one of the most famous symbols ever to be placed on coinage. It represents a society so prosperous that the king who made the Lydia Lion has become part of an adage: “As rich as Croesus”. Croesus was known for being wise and discerning, trusting only the oracle who answered him thus when asked to prove her insight:
I know the sand's number and the measures of the sea.
I understand the mute and hear him though he does not speak.
