Uncertain Eastern, c. 3rd - 2nd Century B.C., In the Name and Types of Alexander III
|Alexander| |the| |Great|, |Uncertain| |Eastern,| |c.| |3rd| |-| |2nd| |Century| |B.C.,| |In| |the| |Name| |and| |Types| |of| |Alexander| |III|, Many Greek cities across what was once Alexander's empire struck Alexander tetradrachms as civic coinage, even centuries after the death of the great conqueror. Similarly, peoples on the fringes of the Greek world also struck Alexander tetradrachms; sometimes with unusual or bizarre style, and often with illiterate blundered inscriptions. These coins are often described as "barbaric." We can attribute some of these imitative types to specific places or tribes. Other coins, such as this one, are a mystery.
