The school of carvers from Heleia
Municipality of Argos
The school of carvers from Heleia, which affected the coin editions of various mints of Continental Greece, contributed to the creative artistic evolution of 4th century B.C.. Artists, who worked in Helis, seem to have also travelled to other places, creating remarkable works of art, like the head of Zeus on the coins of Confederation of Arcadia (about 370-360 B.C.) or on some four-drachmas of Filippos Bī or the head of Hera on the two-drachmas and on the drachmas of Argos in about 370-350 B.C. as well as on the staters of Knossos in about the last quarter of the 4th century B.C.. Helis had already developed a remarkable activity in the mint of silver coins at the 5th century B.C., which was mostly connected with the Olympic Games and characterized by high level of artistic sensitivity, which kept on the following years.
