    Description

    Kingdom of Macedon. Alexander III, the Great, 336-323 B.C. AR tetradrachm minted at Perga, dated year 14 (208/7 B.C.). Head right of young Herakles wearing lion skin, anchor countermark to left of ear/Zeus enthroned left, holding eagle and scepter; letters in left field are date (year 14), referring to a local era which Perga adopted. 16.19 g. Price 2926. VF35 ICG.
    As the posthumous Alexander issues continued, they were exchanged in commerce alongside the beautiful, large-flan Hellenistic issues of such cities as Myrina, Kyme and Herakleia ad Latmon. In order not to be dismissed because of diameter, the late Alexander tetradrachms also became larger, but retained the same weight and purity as the earlier coins. These late style, spread-flan mintages lasted through the 2nd century B.C.
    From the Collection of Dr. Joseph M. Seventko. (Variety PCGS# 100055, Base PCGS# 9840)

    Weight: 8.48 grams
