Description

ATHENS 1906 SUMMER OLYMPIC GAMES COMMEMORATIVE PLAQUE Designed by: Paul Vannier. Obverse: Athlete holding a sword in one hand and a shield in the other. With the Athens Olympic stadium and the Acropolis in the background. Reverse: Victory flies over olive tree and temple holding a trumpet to proclaim the victor in one hand, and a laurel wreath in the other. Again the Acropolis is featured. Stamped on bottom edge "BRONZE" and "PB" in an embossed triangle. Measures 7cm by 4.9cm. This is a rare silver-plated bronze plaque by the French medalist Paul Vannier, struck to commemorate the 1906 Olympic Games in Athens.

Following the re-introduction of the Olympic Games in Athens in 1896, and the success of the 1900 Games in Paris, it was decided to hold the Games at two year intervals - alternating between Athens and an alternative site. The 'Intercalated' Olympic Games were held in Athens in 1906, but did not return in 1910 due to unrest in Greece. The intermediate Games were never restored in 1914 and have not been held since.
