I found it curious to be recently lamenting, to a friend, about my US coin stash that I haven't looked at in over a year and how back then I could have read a biography of Lincoln or Eisenhower and finding no desire to track down a nice Lincoln cent or Eisenhower dollar but when reading about ancient civilizations and personalities I'm inspired to seek out their coins to hold history in my hands. Recently, I delved in to Alexander the Great by Paul Cartledge and soon found myself on the hunt for an Alexander Tetradrachm. Here is the one I purchased: Macedonian Kingdom, Alexander III (the Great), 336 - 323 BC. AR Tetradrachm. Amphipolis Mint, early posthumous issue, Struck c. 323-320 BC. Obv: Head of Alexander right in the guise of Herakles wearing lion-skin headdress. Rev: ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ AΛEΞANΔPOY; Zeus seated left, holding eagle and sceptre; Macedonian helmet in left field. 25 mm, 16.88g. Toned aXF Cf. Price 113 Ex. Stacks, June 14 1993; Lot 62 Ex. Pegasi Numismatics I also picked up a Drachm: Macedonian Kingdom, Alexander III (the Great), 336 - 323 BC. AR drachm. Abydos mint., Struck c. 310-297 BC. Obv: Head of Herakles right, wearing lionskin headdress. Rev: AΛEΞANΔPOY; Zeus seated left, holding eagle and sceptre. 18 mm, 4.16 g. VF+ Cf. Price 1584; SNG Cop 958. Ex. Pegasi Numismatics and previously all I had was this bronze: Macedonian Kingdom, Alexander III (the Great), 336 - 323 BC. Æ half unit. Uncertain mint in Western Asia Minor, Struck c. 325-310 BC. Obv: Macedonian shield, facing head of Herakles on boss. Rev: Macedonian helmet, B-A across lower fields. 16mm, 4.49g, 7h. aXF, Pleasant desert patina. Cf. Price 2802; SNG Alpha Bank 849 (no corn ear). Ex. ROMA-Numismatics-eSale27-Lot142 (unsold) Ex. @arnoldoe I'm quite pleased with this little Alexander collection, but will most likely seek out a lifetime Tet at some point. My apologies for the first two pictures which are mine and which are horrendous, complements to Roma Numismatics for the third. I'd love to see any and all Alexander coins so please post.
