Lot 268
Estimate: 4500 CHF
KINGS OF MACEDON. Alexander III 'the Great', 336-323 BC. Tetradrachm (Silver, 29 mm, 17.19 g, 12 h), struck under Ptolemy (I) as satrap, Memphis, c. 323/2-317/6. Head of youthful Herakles to right, wearing lion's skin headdress. Rev. ΑΛΕΞΑΝΔΡΟΥ Zeus seated left on low throne, his feet resting on a foot stool, holding long scepter in his left hand and, in his right, eagle standing right with closed wings; to left, rose; below throne and to right, ΔΙ - Ο. Lorber 19. Müller 124. Price 3971. SNG Copenhagen 7-8. Zervos Issue 2C. A remarkably fine, sharp, clear, and well-centered example of this desirable type. Lightly toned and of a particularly elegant and fine style. Extremely fine.



The tetradrachms in the name of Alexander struck in Memphis by Ptolemy c. 323-316 have long been viewed as being of the finest style of the entire series. This coin is absolute proof of that: its beautifully centered obverse and reverse are truly sculptural in quality.
