Macedonian Kingdom, Kassander - Antigonos II Gonatas, 310 - 275 B.C., In the Name and Types of Alexander the Great
|Alexander| |the| |Great|, |Macedonian| |Kingdom,| |Kassander| |-| |Antigonos| |II| |Gonatas,| |310| |-| |275| |B.C.,| |In| |the| |Name| |and| |Types| |of| |Alexander| |the| |Great|, This coin was struck during a chaotic time when the Greece and Anatolia were the battlegrounds of Alexander's successors. The old men, once comrades in Alexander's army, along with their children, fought each other to death to expand their kingdoms. Cities, such as Lampsacus, in territory that might change hands after the next battle, struck coins in the types and name of Alexander, perhaps as much to maintain neutrality and some continuity, as to honor the deified king.
