KINGS of MACEDON. Philip III Arrhidaios. 323-317 BC. Stater (Gold, 8.58 g 6), Lampsakos. Head of Athena to right, wearing pendant earring, necklace and crested Corinthian helmet. Rev. ΦΙΛΙΠΠΟΥ Nike standing left, holding wreath in her right hand and stylis with her left; below her left wing, crescent over Α; to left, buckle. Price P 14. A splendid and well centered piece. Extremely fine.

The way Nike seems to be bending her legs makes it appear that she is just alighting to present a victor with a wreath.
