Seleukos VI, Epiphanies Nikator silver tetradrachm (95-94 BC): These coins originated from the Seleucid Kingdom that was established by Seleukos, general of Alexander the Great, after the death of Alexander. At its peak, the kingdom comprised almost all of the conquests of Alexander the Great with the exception of Egypt. Antiochus VII ruled from 138-129 BC and led a successful campaign in Palestine and Babylon. He ruled with competence and integrity but was killed in battle against the Parthian. Epiphanies Nikator was the eldest son of Antiochus VIII.

Ancient Greece. Silver Philip II tetradrachm coin, the obverse with the head of Zeus, the reverse with a King on horseback, and inscriptions.

The accession of Philip II to the Macedonian throne in 359 BC marked the beginning of a new chapter in the history of the Greek World. Having made himself master of Greece by a mixture of military skill and diplomacy, he was free to pursue his greatest ambition - the conquest of the Persian Empire. But the assassin’s sword, 336 BC, prevented Philip from realizing this dream and the invasion of Asia was undertaken instead by his son Alexander, known to posterity as ‘the Great.’

359-336 BC
