Greek, Alexander the Great, Lysimachos tetradrachm
Minted in Magnesia, this is one of the most beautiful portraits of Alexander the Great, a true Hellenistic masterpiece. He is looking to the sky, towards Olympus and he is sending a truly arogant smile to the Gods, as if containing the message "I was a true God on Earth!"
