KINGS OF MACEDON. Alexander III ‘the Great’, 336-323 BC. Tetradrachm (Silver, 34 mm, 16.74 g, 1 h), uncertain mint in Caria, circa 201-190. Head of Herakles to right, wearing lion skin headdress. Rev. AΛEΞANΔPOY Zeus seated left on low throne, holding long scepter in his left hand and eagle standing right with closed wings in his right; to left, griffin standing left, head facing, holding spear in its jaws; in exergue, grain ear (?). Price -. Apparently unpublished. A bold and impressive coin of great interest. Die breaks on the reverse, otherwise, good very fine.


Style and fabric of this issue are clearly reminiscent of the Rhodian Alexander-tetradrachms, however, it lacks the island's rose - perhaps it was struck in (or for) the Rhodian Peraia on the Carian mainland?
