The coin was struck around 10 years after the death of Alexander the Great, under Antigonos "The One-Eyed" Monophthalmos, one of the famous generals who served under Alexander, and who was a major player in the Diadochi Wars after Alexander's death. Here is the seller's photo, and then my photo: Antigonos I Monophthalmos, As Strategos of Asia, AR Tetradrachm (24.5mm, 17.10 g). In the name and types of Alexander III of Macedon. Susa mint.

CNG E-Auction 475 Though I obviously knew the diameter and the weight of the coin before buying it, I was very excited when I got it in hand...the seller's photo didn't do it justice. The coin is thick, and it was struck in the highest relief of any coin I own. I'm not the best photographer, but I took a couple of pictures of the coin at an angle to try and capture the high relief. The coin is also from one of my favorite periods in history, the Diadochi Wars, which were fought to claim Alexander's empire after he died. Antigonos I Monophthalmos (which translates to Antigonos "the One-Eyed"), had lost an eye in battle while serving under Alexander's father, Philip II. After and during the many wars against other notable figures of the time following Alexander's death, Antigonos ended up occupying a huge amount of territory, including most of Asia Minor, parts of Greece, Phoenicia, and parts of Syria. He eventually named himself King of his territory, and started his own dynasty. He managed to live until 81 years old, an impressive accomplishment for someone who was at war for most of his life, and died in battle at 81 by being hit by a javelin, a nice send-off for a true warrior. Below is a map showing his territory as of 303 BC. (Map courtesy of Wikipedia) I'm so happy with this new purchase, and would love to see some of your Macedonian tets. Please post your tetradrachms or drachms from Macedon (or post-Macedonian Kingdoms), your coins of Antigonos I, or anything else relevant!
