A colleague has asked me to assist in identifying the symbol on this Alexander the Great type Tetradrachm
with pellet/annulet monogram
below the throne clearly links this
with similar issues from the Macedonian "Amphipolis
(c.320-317 BC). However, examining the text and plates in Price
, as well
as the hundreds of images at PELLA
and at various online search
has revealed nothing that matches this particular symbol in left field
I have even tried to narrow down a possible obverse
die match, without success
, but noted that there are quite a few examples that may be
viewed as being stylistically similar, adding to the probability that this is,
in fact, from the above group of issues.
Can anyone determine what this symbol might be? Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance,
P.S. The image is not the best, but please concentrate on the symbol
and the association of an exact or near-exact match, not just general
shapes (most of which I have excluded by viewing PELLA
, etc., etc.).
