KINGS of MACEDON. Philip III Arrhidaios. 323-317 BC. AR Drachm (17mm, 4.25 g, 12h). In the name and types of Alexander III. Kolophon mint. Struck under Menander or Kleitos, circa 322-319 BC. Head of Herakles right, wearing lion skin / Zeus Aëtophoros seated left; barley grain in left field, spearhead in outer right field. Price 1750. Attractively toned, a hint of porosity, die break on reverse. EF. Well centered and struck from dies of exemplary style.

From the Style Collection.

On this charming coin, the head of Herakles is fleshier and more rounded, filling the circular flan almost completely. The figure of Zeus on the back is a tour-de-force, fully muscled and semi-recumbent, with his legs almost casually crossed.

“Perfectly centered. Even with drachms, this is the exception rather than the rule!” (From the consignor)
