This issue commemorates the 60th anniversary of the death of writer Nikos Kasantzakis.

Nikos Kazantzakis (1883–1957) is widely considered a giant of modern Greek literature, and he was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in nine different years. Kazantzakis' novels included Zorba the Greek (published 1946 as Life and Times of Alexis Zorbas), Christ Recrucified (1948), Captain Michalis (1950, translated 'Freedom or Death), and The Last Temptation of Christ (1955). He also wrote plays, travel books, memoirs and philosophical essays such as The Saviors of God: Spiritual Exercises. His fame spread in the English-speaking world due to cinematic adaptations of Zorba the Greek (1964) and The Last Temptation of Christ (1988).

The reverse depicts a portrait of Nikos Kasantzakis and the inscription "60 YEARS OF THE DEATH OF NIKOS KASANTZAKIS" in Greek.
