Why add Silver Tetradrachm from the Kingdom of Thrace to your collection of ancient coins?

Lysimachus was crowned ruler of the Kingdom of Thrace in 323 BC after the death of Alexander III, known to the world as Alexander the Great. Inheriting one of the smaller regions of Alexanders Empire, Lysimachus maintained control of Thrace until he defeated the King of Asia, Antigonus Monophthalmus at Ipsus, in 301 BC. With an expanded region that now included lands with precious metals and a regional Mint, it was at this time that Lysimachus began to mint coinage for Thrace.

Divine imagery adorns this ancient coin.

The reverse features Athena seated upon a throne left facing, together with her tools of war, a spear, shield, and Nike, the Winged Goddess of Victory; flanked by the inscription: "OF KING LYSIMACHUS." The obverse depicts a portrait Alexander the Great accompanied by the horn of Ammon. The horn implies Alexander's relationship to the god Zeus Ammon, and by political association, a connection of Lysimachus to both Alexander and the divine Zeus.

Extremely Fine ancient coin.

We take all of our photos in house and due to reflections on the mirrored or proof surfaces of a coin there may appear to be 'black' when there is not. If a coin has a color on it at all it will be described as 'colorized' in the description or title. Due to the large inventory we sell, we use stock photos. Serial numbers will vary from the image shown unless specifically stated in the product listing that the item pictured is the item you will receive.
