Description
This genuine ancient silver coin has been mounted in a modern 18 karat gold bezel set into a silver money clip.

In the complex political game of the Hellenistic era, Lysimachus was a master player. A friend and bodyguard of Alexander the Great, Lysimachus assumed the regency of Macedonia after the young king's death. This splendid coin evokes the myth of Alexander by portraying him with the sacred ram horns of the Egyptian god Ammon. This link to the divine Alexander was intended to strengthen Lysimachus' claims to the throne. Such a coin, blending legend and reality, epitomizes the grandeur of the Classical Age at its height. - (FJ.4465)
