    MACEDONIAN KINGDOM. Alexander III the Great (336-323 BC). AV stater (19mm, 8.59 gm, 7h). Early posthumous issue of Babylon, 316-311 BC, under Antigonus Monopthalmus, commander in Mesopotamia. Head of Athena right, wearing crested Corinthian helmet decorated with coiled serpent / ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ  ΑΛΕΞΑΝΔΡΟΥ, Nike standing left, holding wreath in outstretched right hand and stylis over left shoulder, head of satyr in left field, monogram inside wreath under right wing. Price 3736. Müller 730. Crisply struck on a broad flan, with a detailed satyr's head. NGC Choice MS? 5/5 - 5/5, Fine Style.

    The Satyr's head seen here bears a striking resemblance to the head of Pan later adopted by the grandson of Antigonus Monopthalmus, Antigonus Gonatas, as his royal emblem during his reign as king of Macedon, 277-239 BC.
