Reverse description : Zeus aétophore, les jambes parallèles, assis à gauche sur un siège sans dossier, nu jusqu'à la ceinture, tenant un aigle posé sur sa main droite et un long sceptre de la main gauche ; dans le champ à gauche, statuette d’Athéna Promachos.
Reverse legend : ALEXANDROU BASILEWS.
Reverse translation : (Alexandre roi).

Commentary


La légende au revers est plutôt inhabituelle et n’est pas forcément distinguée par M. Price dans son corpus. Normalement, le titre de basileos est devant le nom du roi, la tête de Zeus coupant la légende. Sur notre exemplaire, la légende est continue, sans césure et vient se placer au-dessus du sujet, suivant le contour du flan. Le symbole (Athéna Promachos) n’est pratiquement pas visible.

Historical background


MACEDONIA - KINGDOM OF MACEDONIA - PHILIPPE III Arridaeus

(323-316 BC)

Coining the name and type of Alexander III the Great

Philip, son of Philip II and half-brother of Alexander, was not any reason. On the death of the conqueror and to deficiency of power in order to maintain the fiction of the unity of the Empire, he was proclaimed king, but in fact it had no power. He was assassinated at the instigation of Olympias, the mother of Alexander, in 316 BC.
