What is it with these people that they have to make up such incredibly unreasonable stories? A mushroom for gods sake? Are these people really so afraid of what the truth may be that they are willing to look like fools suggesting that these unexplained things are so mundane, and so very completely unlikely? They ust be stupid.
I don't know what is on the cion, but if I had to make a guess I would say it was a representation of the flying shield. Seems most likely. Although I would rather think it was a UFO, I don't see any corroborating evidence in history which would surly exists if a UFO event big enough for this type of coin to be minted had occured.

I'd say this example kind of nails it.
From this coin, it is pretty easy to make the sacred shield story stick...as here, it is protecting from the enemy's attack....
