    Description

    MACEDONIAN KINGDOM. Alexander III the Great (336-323 BC). AV stater (18mm, 8.59 gm, 2h). NGC MS 5/5 - 2/5, scuffs. Late lifetime or early posthumous issue of 'Amphipolis', ca. 325-319 BC. Head of Athena right, wearing crested Corinthian helmet pushed back on head, the bowl decorated with coiled serpent / AΛEΞANΔPOY, Nike standing left, wreath in outstretched right hand, stylis cradled on left arm; cantharus in left field. Price 168. The nearly perfect centering showcases the highly artistic reverse on this coin.

    There appears to be a faint Λ signature or control mark on the obverse behind the neck, however no such examples are discussed in Price. It is likely a die break or similar mark as there was another example from this pair of dies sold by Classical Numismatic Group, Auction 88 (14 September 2011), lot 127, which also displays the same feature.


    馬其頓王國,亞歷山大三世大帝 (336-323 BC). 標準重斯塔特金幣。(18mm, 8.59 gm, 2h)。 NGC MS 5/5 - 2/5。 有刮痕。
    安菲波利斯鑄造,亞歷山大大帝晚年或逝世早期,約公元前325-319年。雅典娜面右頭像面右,戴飾蛇紋的科林斯頭盔,露出前額。背面幣文ALEXANDROY,尼克站姿面左,右手持花環,左臂擁杖,左底面有康塔羅斯雙耳杯。Price 168。 幾近完美的端正打制襯托了極富藝術美的背面。

    此枚背面似乎有一輕微的L字簽名或戳印位於尼克頸後,但Price並未提過這一類例子。可能是幣模有損或有類似戳記,Classical Numismatic Group曾於2011年9月14日拍賣售出一枚來自該組幣模的錢幣(lot 127)就帶有同樣的特征。
