In a last minute change, Greece changed the theme of the 2-euro commemorative coin for 2015 from „75th Anniversary of the October 28, 1940,“ to „75th Anniversary of the death of the Athlete Spiridon Louis „.
Spiridon Louis was a Greek water-carrier who won the first modern-day Olympic marathon at the 1896 Summer Olympics, thereby becoming a national hero. Louis was born in the town of Marousi, which is now a suburb to the north of Athens, into a poor family. Louis’s father sold mineral water in Athens, at the time lacking a central water supply, and his son helped him by transporting it.
