    Description

    Unlisted in Price.

    MACEDONIAN KINGDOM. Alexander III the Great (336-323 BC). AR tetradrachm (16.93 gm). About XF. Imitative/barbarous (?) issue of uncertain mint, ca. 325-323 BC. Head of Heracles right, wearing lion-skin headdress, paws tied before neck / AΛEΞANΔP, Zeus seated left on backless throne, right leg drawn back, left leg extended, eagle in right hand, scepter in left; EY below strut. Price -.

    There are four mints listed in Price for EY below the throne, each with only one example, however they are all accompanied by various field marks. Also, stylistically this coin does not fit well with any of the published mints in Price, based on the powerfully thick portrait on the obverse, the simplistic execution of the headdress across the neck, which terminates with either paws or what appears to be CΦ, the position of Zeus's left leg and the bold rendering of Zeus's drapery which extends under the throne and terminates in a large globule. As a final note, the legend is missing the final two letters of Alexander's name. All in all a very intriguing coin worthy of more research.
