This part of the story is confirmed by the archeological confirmation as a few damaged coins wrecked by a major etch stamp were found at Sinope dated the center of the fourth century BC, and different coins of a similar day and age bearing the name of Hicesias as the official who made them. The purpose behind this demonstration is still uncertain, in spite of the fact that Sinope had been the observer of conflicts between master Persian and ace Greek groups in the fourth century, and there might be some political thought processes behind the same.

Another story in regards to this demonstration proposes that Diogenes went to the Oracle at Delphi to take its recommendation, and was asked that he ought to “destroy the cash”, and Diogenes understood that the prophet implied that he ought to mutilate the political money as opposed to the genuine coins.
