This ancient coin was minted between 297-282 BC under the rule of Lysimachus in Parium, located in modern-day Turkey. Parium is the location where Alexander the Great crossed into Anatolia from Greece as he expanded his empire. Alexander the Great is pictured on the obverse (front) of the coin, with the horns of Zeus Ammon and a crown on his head. The goddess Athena is pictured upon a throne wearing a Corinthian helmet and holding the goddess Nike with a wreath on her extended right hand on the reverse (back) side.
