Historical background


(323-301 BC)

Coinage in the name of Alexander III the Great type

After the death of Philip III in 316 BC, power was widely disputed between Olympias, mother of Alexander, Alexander IV and the Diadochi, in particular Cassander and Antigone. Antigone le Borgne appears on the political scene in 321 BC by crushing Eumenes, satrap of Cappadocia, who will be assassinated by Antigone in 316 BC. From the following year, Antigone enters into the fight against Seleucus, Ptolemy, Cassander and Lysimachus. Antigone occupied Syria and proclaimed the freedom of the Greek cities in 314 BC. Antigone and his son Demetrius were defeated in Gaza. A peace that excludes Seleucus is signed in 311 BC In 306, Demetrius wins the naval victory of Salamis in Cyprus. Antigone takes the title of King, imitated by the other Diadoques. Eventually Antigonus was defeated and killed at the Battle of Ipsos in 301 BC..
