Hi Friends,

I hope I hit the right folder for this one. Wanted to share one of my newest additions in my 2nd century AD collection of Tetradrachms. I liked the patina of this one and the coin is generally good enough for me to be collected, I thought.

Ancients Greek, Macedon. Under Roman Rule. First Meris. Ca. 167-148 BC. AR Tetradrachm
16.69 gr, 31 mm

Obverse: Bust of Artemis right, wearing stephane, bow and capped quiver over shoulder, all within circle of dots in tondo of Macedonian shield

Reverse: MAKEΔONΩN / ΠPΩTHΣ, club right; AP monogram above, oak crown around, thunderbolt behind

Reference: SNG Copenhagen 1310-1311.

Best wishes,
Burak
