Historical background


MACEDONIA - KINGDOM OF MACEDONIA - PHILIP III ARRHIDAEUS

(323-316 BC)

Coinage in the name and Alexander III the Great type

Philip, son of Philip II and the half-brother of Alexander, was not entirely in his right mind. On the death of the conqueror and faced with the lack of power, in order to maintain the fiction of the unity of the Empire, he was proclaimed king, but in fact he had no power. He was assassinated at the instigation of Olympias, Alexander's mother, in 316 BC.
