KINGS of MACEDON. Philip III Arrhidaios. 323-317 BC. AR Drachm (17.5mm, 4.21 g, 12h). In the name of Alexander III. Kolophon mint. Struck under Menander or Kleitos, circa 322-319 BC.

This reverse die used for this coin was originally used to strike the previous issue, Price 1753, with vertical barley grain below the throne. Here one can see the remnant of the barley grain after an attempt was made to erase it in the die. Moreover, this coin was struck from the same obverse die as the plate coin for Price 1753. [See CNG 93, lot 158 for another from the same dies.]
