Telesphorus is the god of convalescence, a fitting coin for today's world (while we are still not out of the woods yet, at least we have a way out (vaccines) that we didn't have this time last year.

I initially thought this belonged to the BC era Greece, but after a bit of digging I found out it's actually a Roman era coin from the Conventus of Pergamum.
Issued under Antoninus Pius,
Magistrate- I. Pol(l)ion (strategos for the second time, asiarch and neokoros)
147-161 AD
Obverse- ΠΕΡΓΑΜΗΝΩN. bust of Athena.
Reverse- ΕΠΙ #1017;ΤΡΑ Ι ΠΩΛΛΙΩ ΤΟ Β. Telesphorus standing, facing.
Post your Telesphorus or any creepy looking coins!

Creepy? He's just one set of bat ears and a Trick-or-Treat bag away from cute.
