Description
Macedonian Kingdom, Demetrius I Poliorketes, 306 - 283 B.C.

GS77503. Silver tetradrachm, Meydancikkale 2585, Newell 150, SNG Alpha Bank 953, SNG Munchen -, SNG Berry -, broken in three pieces, crystallized and fragile, small bits missing, Euboea, Chalkis mint, 14.952 grams, 29.1 mm, c. 290 - 287 B.C.; obverse Demetrios diademed head right with horns of a bull, the animal sacred to Demetrios` patron deity, Poseidon; reverse ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ ∆ΗΜΗΤΡΙΟΥ, Poseidon standing left, right foot on rock, right arm resting on right thigh, trident vertical in left hand (apparently inspired by the Lateran Poseidon, a statue by Lysippos, court sculptor of Alexander), K outer left, bunch of grapes outer right; rare; estimated value: $400.00

The bull`s horns suggest Demetrius` relationship to Poseidon is the same as Alexander`s to Zeus Ammon. The portrait is individualized, but evokes the image of Alexander. Demetrios was the first to assimilate elements of Alexander`s deified portrait and the first living ruler to portray himself as a god on coins.




PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS

Please read the instructions below and use our automated checkout to make payment for FORVM Auctions. (If you win an auction and Forum is not the seller, you will have to contact them for payment instructions).

Please CHECKOUT WITHIN 3 DAYS after your first FORVM Auction win. After 10 DAYS unpaid FORVM Auctions may be relisted.

Books, lots, and antiquities will require higher shipping charges. They cannot be shipped by first class mail. Oversees shipping for heavy items may be very expensive. If the actual postage exceeds our shipping fee, we will inform you of the difference and expect you to pay the actual cost.

To save money, you may COMBINE SHIPPING CHARGES for coins from multiple FORVM Auctions and also for coins purchased Forum`s fixed price COINS AND ANTIQUITIES CONSIGNMENT SHOP.

To combine shipping, wait until the last auction you wish to combine has closed before checking out (but not more than 10 DAYS after the first auction closed).

To combine shipping with coins from Forum`s fixed-price COINS AND ANTIQUITIES CONSIGNMENT SHOP, add them to your shopping cart immediately before or during Auction Checkout.

During checkout, you will be offered the opportunity to purchase Auction Checkout Specials. These coins are priced at or just above Forum`s cost. If they don`t interest you, ignore them and continue with checkout.

During checkout, you will select your desired shipping (airmail, registered, priority, FEDEX, etc.) and payment options (including secure credit card submission, check, PayPal, etc.) and place the order.

How To Bid

1. Register for a Forum Ancient Coins account - if you haven't already.
2. Login to your account - if you haven't already.
3. Learn about the seller - Read feedback and ratings left by others to assure that the seller is trustworthy.  Forum bans sellers that have customer complaints, but it is still a good idea to check the seller's feedback.
4. Know the details - read the item description, seller terms, and shipping charges closely.  Sellers are required to accept PayPal (and you should only pay with PayPal), to guarantee delivery, and to guarantee authenticity without a time limit.  Read the sellers listing for other terms and return policies.
5. If you have questions - contact the seller FORVM AUCTIONS before you bid (click on the seller's username to send a message to the seller).
6. Place your bid!  Bid the maximum amount you want to pay for the item.  Your bid is an automated proxy bid and the amount will always be kept secret.  The program will automatically bid for you, the lowest possible amount (one increment above the next highest bid), and only up to your maximum.  If other bids are placed before the auction closes, the system will automatically bid for you again, but again only the minimum amount needed, and only up to your maximum.  If someone else bids more than your maximum, you will not be the high bidder; to win, you will need to place a higher bid before the auction closes.  If you are the high bidder at the end of the auction, you are the winner.  As the winner of the auction, you only pay the lowest possible winning bid, which may be less than your maximum bid.
