Note from Robert: This coin is quite unique! The large tetradrachm denomination, you will notice the stamp (upside down on this coin) of the Seleucid anchor. The Seleucid empire was massive - founded by Alexander's greatest general upon his death. This coin was minted "in the type of Alexander." But the once mighty empire was conquered by the new kids on the block - the Romans. The anchor stamp is most likely here because this coin was paid in tribute to the now mighty Roman Empire... a fascinating player in ancient history!
Alexander earned the epithet “the Great” due to his legendary success as a military commander. He is known to have never lost a battle, despite being constantly outnumbered in the many battles he fought. Alexander also recognized the potential for disunity among his diverse army, which had different customs, languages and weapons, and overcame the difficulties by being personally involved in the military action, in the great traditions of the Macedonian kings.
At his death in 323 BC, in Babylon at the age of 32, Alexander left a world permanently changed – a world in which the Greek language and culture would form the intellectual foundation for the next 300 years and beyond.
