Well struck from dies of pleasing style. A wonderful coin in hand.

From the Style Collection.

This Miletos-mint drachm in the name of Alexander the Great has a rather distinctive style. Herakles appears rather lean here, more like the classic image of Apollo. The engraver of the obverse shows a fine sense of proportion and strong knowledge of facial anatomy. The reverse figure of Zeus is nicely proportioned but adheres to the older quasi-archaic convention showing his legs side-by-side.
