    Description

    MACEDONIAN KINGDOM. Alexander III the Great (336-323 BC). AR tetradrachm (16.42 gm). VF. Lifetime issue of Myriandros or Issos mint, ca. 330-325 BC. Head of Heracles right, wearing lion-skin headdress / Zeus seated left, holding eagle and scepter; scorpion in left field, monogram below throne. Price 3218. Polished.

    Offered together with what has to be the most elaborate packaging ever assembled to help sell an ancient coin, including a beautiful wooden box with an image of the Parthenon laminated on the top, a Certificate of Authenticity and booklet detailing Alexander's conquests, and an immense 90mm gilt silver medallion, weighing 12 ounces, displaying the facade of the Parthenon, a Greek key pattern, ionic column capital, and a circular cutout for the coin. Impressive for the marketing aspect alone!
