Once Again, a coin I did not ever pass by before. I am tempted to trace the maze to see if there is a passage on a bitmap picture in red using maybe Microsoft Paint.

18.5mm, 4.15g, CRETE, 220 BC Knossos-Gortyna Alliance, Europa & Labyrinth. Europa, holding veil, seated left on bull leaping left; dolphins below, radiating lines in periphery / Labyrinth; star above. Svoronos, Numismatique 118; SNG Copenhagen 378-9 var. (two dolphins); Traeger 178.

Spence:

Aside from if the maze is a real one that can be traced to an end, were they different mazes drawn on different coins or all the same exact layout of the maze with all the same passages? I certainly think there is some room for study there and a person could just rely on the published examples available online to do this without buying any of the coins. Then the big next question is are any of these mazes a match to a real maze that was in existence with the exact same passages? Like could the coins be a map? (Someone must have done all of this I imagine.)
