Please Note: This is an authentic Ancient Greek Treasure Coin, and you will receive the exact pendant in the photographs and description.
Alexander the Great of Macedon, was the greatest conqueror of the ancient world. He became the king of Macedonia in 336 BC at the age of 20. He inherited from his father the dream to conquer the Persian Empire, the largest and most powerful empire known to that date. Alexander was a military and organizational genius – considered a god by some and a monstrous tyrant by others. He was educated by Aristotle, and was noted for his unparalleled bravery paired with irresistible charisma. Alexander’s coinage was the most extensive and uniform of the ancient world before the establishment of the Roman Empire.
Notes from Robert: This is a beautiful piece in hand. It was lost or buried not long after it was minted, and represents the top 3% - 5% of drachms discovered. You can clearly see all of the detail - including the ear and tooth of the lion. Best of all, it is almost what we call "zero die axis." When these were struck, the Ancient Greeks didn't care if the top of one side of the coin was also the top on the other side - what we call "Medallic Orientation." This coin is one of the rarest - top grade and you can wear it either side out. I use 3 prongs on this type of coin so I don't cover details on the portrait.
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.
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.
