    Description

    Patraos (335-315 BC). AR tetradrachm (12.90 gm). Laureate head of Apollo right / ΠATPAOY, warrior on horse rearing right, attacking with spear enemy below, raising shield; in upper left field, monogram. Paeonian Hoard 237-41 (same dies). SNG ANS -. A couple of edge splits, but otherwise nicely centered on a large flan. Toned. Good very fine.

    Ex Triton XI (8-9 January 2008), 134.

    Patraos ruled the Paeonians contemporary with Alexander the Great. Although his kingdom was formally subject to Macedonia, the reverse type of Patraos' coinage, depicting a Paeonian cavalryman riding down a Macedonian phalangite, makes it clear that the old enmity of the two kingdoms was still very much alive. Ironically, the Apollo of the obverse closely imitates that found of coins of Philip II of Macedon, the author of Paeonian subjection.
