    Noe's record omits the Eretrian fractions 
        and includes three owls. E. J. P. 
        Raven (in a letter dated Oct. 3, 1951)
        points out that the three earliest ac-
        counts of the hd. indicate the presence 
        of the Euboean coins but provide no 
        evidence for the owls. The confusion 
        in the later reports would seem, as he 
        says, to stem from Cousinéry's line 
        drawings (pl. 4) which include owls as 
        examples of later Athenian issues
