GRIECHISCHE MÜNZEN
KÖNIGREICH MAKEDONIEN
ALEXANDER III. DER GROSSE (336 - 323)
Tetradrachm, Uncertain mint in Greece (?), probably under Antigonos II Gonatas, 280-260. Head of Herakles right, wearing lion skin headress. Rev: ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ ΑΛΕΞΑΝΔΡΟΥ. Zeus seated left, hol­ding eagle and scepter; in left field, AI monogram. Price -; Hersh -. 16,72g. Very rare. Extremely fine. The engraving style of this coin suggests that it comes from an uncertain mint in Greece as it is similar to certain dies used there (cf. Price 796-881). The full legend with ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ and its placement on this coin is not common for Alexandrine tetradrachms struck in Greece, but it is known. The other possibility for mint attribution is to an uncertain mint in southern Asia Minor, cf. Price 3064-84, but stylistically it is quite different from those issues.
