Though, you probably should. I mean I would be and am. And what I mean by that is this, this aint some sexy Alexander tet that I had to put my house up for third mortgage to acquire, my kids college educations are still #1 (though I may have splurged and have a ridonculous new, but slightly anciently used, coin on its way...though that is for another post). I got this lil doozy, an upgrade on one I already owned of the type for less than most joints charge for a cheeseburger. It's true! Usually I find it a bit tasteless to share prices, unless it is a steal of a deal. Like IDK...$2.75! We get it, we get it. Ryro the frugal, with another bargain basement acquisition. Get to the point. Yeesh! ok, ok. This is one of the first types of the ever AWESOME Macedonian shield coins. And due to the BA (Βασιλιάς or BAsileus= Greek for king) we know it to be a lifetime (or shortly thereafter) issue of Alexander da GREAT. The Diadochi, Alexander's generals and immediate successors, removed the BA from this type of coinage for a couple decades after Alexander's death to show respect. Most agree that Seleucus was the first to give himself the monicor. Though, it wasn't long before the rest of the gang started putting the title on their coins as well, lest their followers start believing someone else's hype above theirs! Another very cool point about the obverse boss, the symbol on the front of the shield that the handle on the back would often attach to, is that it is of the Olympic torch! As you will recall, his Dad, Philip II, was so proud of getting the Macedonians involved in the Olympic games that he put his first place horse on the reverse of his coinage! And here we have son putting the image of the spirit of those games on his coinage. Pretty cool tie in. You've hung in with me thus far, so check out the coin: Alexander III the Great 336-323 B.C. AE 17 half-unit (16 mm, 4.44 g, 10 h). Uncertain Macedonian mint, struck 325-323 B.C. (Amphipolis?). Macedonian shield; race torch on boss / Β Α / Σ Ι, Crested Macedonian helmet with cheek guards; in bottom field, trident head right to left of caduceus right, both above monogram . Price 0420. NVF, The race-torch - traditional badge of Amphipolis - uncommon boss, Scarce. Upgraded is a bit strong as I do like the obverse of the oldy better: Purchased from Savoca Talk about a busy reverse! They say, you have a trident, caduceus a monogram or 2...but what they missed is that some 2,250 year before Albert Einstein, there was Alexander Einstein! Take a closer look at that reverse... Look familiar??? I thought so as well. You see, all those years of us only giving ATG credit for conquering most of the known world he was also busy conquering physics! I kid, I kid. But please, post those Alexander the greats, diadochi, you know I am always down for more shield coins, wild conspiracy theories, fun coins you found on the cheap that you feel should be worth more or whatever travels from your brain to your fingers faster than the speed of Bucephalus!
