KINGS OF MACEDON. Alexander III ‘the Great’, 336-323 BC. Stater (Gold, 19 mm, 8.63 g, 7 h), uncertain mint in the Levante, circa 323-315/300. Head of Athena to right, wearing Corinthian helmet decorated with a winged lion. Rev. AΛEΞANΔΡOΥ Nike standing front, head to left, with her wings spread, holding laurel wreath in her right hand and stylis in her left; to left, the ram of a ship. Price -. Apparently unpublished. A brilliant, wonderful piece, fully sharply struck and fully lustrous. Virtually as struck.
What makes this coin especially interesting is the animal on the bowl of the helmet: it is clearly not a sphinx or a griffin, but a winged lion.
