    Well Ryro, here it is , Perdikkas II , son of Alexander the first , founder of the Kingdom of Macedonia.
    Both father and son ruled for over 40 years each in difficult times for the new kingdom.
    Between 413 and 359 BC 10 kings followed untill Philip II became king, and laid the foundation for a Macedonian empire created by his son.

    Nice coins. This isn't so nice - I found a Perdikkas III AE in my local dealer's junk box - it is a bit cruddy, but my only "early" Macedonian kingdom coin:

    The lion side is a bit better than the Hercules side:
