    Given Acheloios’ association with the cornucopia, I thought I’d start a thread. He’s a plate coin from me and Nico’s book:

    AKARNANIA: Leukas, c. 219 to 211 BC. Obverse: Zeus right, bird behind (looking back), API below. Dotted border. Rev: Head of Acheloios right, wing-like ear, trident above, Akarnanian Federal monogram behind. Linear border. BCD Akarnania 32; MSP I, 462 (this coin illustrated).

    Please contribute by posting cornucopias, Acheloios, or anything with food!
