    Mint State Stater

    MACEDONIAN KINGDOM. Alexander III the Great (336-323 BC). AV stater (19mm, 8.60 gm, 6h). Lifetime or early posthumous issue of 'Amphipolis,' ca. 330-320 BC. Head of Athena right, wearing triple crested Corinthian helmet decorated with coiled serpent, Aegis at base of neck / ΑΛΕΞΑΝΔΡΟΥ, Nike standing left, holding wreath in outstretched right hand and stylis over left shoulder, horizontal trident head in left field. Price 175. Struck in sculptural high relief and lustrous. NGC MS 5/5 - 4/5.

    Martin Price identifies this type as originating in Macedon during the lifetime of Alexander and the early posthumous period, down to 320 BC. The major mint city of Amphipolis is used for convenience but he suggests that Philippi, located nearer the region's rich gold mines, as another strong possibility.
