This ancient Thracian coin has just been banned from eBay for being ‘hateful or discriminatory’ due to its Nazi-like symbol.

The coin dates as far back as the 4th of 5th century and was minted in the city of Apollonia Pontica. It had reached as much as €48 in bids but despite the pleas of auction house Numismatik Lanz the coin was removed from sale as it was seen to ‘glorify or trivialize National Socialism’.
