    Description

    Seleukid Kingdom. Seleukos I Nikator. 312-281 B.C. AR tetradrachm (26 mm, 16.92 g, 1 h). Susa, ca. 305/4-295 B.C. Head of hero (Alexander the Great or Seleukos I) right, wearing Attic helmet adorned with panther skin and bull's horns / Nike standing right, crowning trophy; in left field and between, monograms. SC 173.9; ESM 422; ESMS 46-7. Good VF, toned.

    ReCent work has suggested that the start date of this series could be lowered to c. 300 B.C. This would make it an issue celebrating Seleukos' victory over Antigonos at the battle of Ipsos in 301 B.C. and would explain the Macedonian star emblem on the shield of the trophy.
