KINGS of MACEDON. temp. Alexander III – Antigonos I Monophthalmos. Circa 333-305 BC. Æ Unit (19.5mm, 8.53 g, 5h). In the name of Alexander III. Uncertain mint in the Troad (Alexandreia Troas?). Head of Herakles right, wearing lion skin / Charioteer, holding kentron and reins, driving fast biga right; trident head below. Price 1587; Bellinger A1; Meadows, Earliest, p. 49 and pl. 3, 1. Earthen dark green patina, some chipping at edge. VF. Extremely rare, only six published: 3 in excavations at Troas, one each in the BM and BN, and Bellinger noted an example in Imhoof-Blumer’s collection (current disposition is unknown, but illustrated in AMNG III/2, pl. XXXI, 26); there are none in CoinArchives, nor any additional in Pella.

Bellinger attributed this issue to Troas based on the presence of the three coins found in the excavations at Troy. Price thought the issue was from the Troad, but deferred to Bellinger on it’s placement at Alexandreia. Meadows doubts the attribution to Alexandria, but agrees with Price that it likely is from the Troad.
