KINGS of MACEDON. Alexander III. 336-323 BC. AV Stater (8.58 gm). Abydos mint. Struck under Antigonos I Monophthalmos, circa 306/5 BC. Helmeted head of Athena right; serpent on helmet / Nike standing left, holding wreath and stylis; monogram below left wing, Z under right wing. Price 1527A var. (monogram slightly different); ADM II Series XVI, 292 var. (same, but same obverse die); Müller 1617 var. (same). VF. ($1250)

The die-engraver of this reverse apparently forgot to add the omega to the top of the monogram.
