Lot 85
Estimate: 6000 CHF
KINGS of MACEDON. Philip II, 359-336 BC. Stater (Gold, 18mm, 8.55 g 2), Amphipolis, struck during the reign of Philip III, 323/2 - 315. Laureate head of Apollo to right. Rev. ΦΙΛΙΠΠΟΥ Biga rushing to right, driven by charioteer holding goad in his right hand and reins in his left; below horses, trident. Le Rider 206 (same dies). A most attractive piece perfectly struck on a full flan. Extremely fine.


From a German collection formed prior to 2000.

Great numbers of gold coins in the name of Philip II were struck to pay his soldiers, and those of Alexander III; after their terms of service were over those troops returned to their homes, bringing their golden pay along with them. Thanks to their purity and beauty, the staters of Philip II, which were issued in only a few mints during his lifetime (primarily the royal Macedonian mints of Amphipolis and Pella), continued to be struck after his death and also gave rise to a vast and long lasting series of imitations, produced by the Celtic peoples of Western and Central Europe.
