Alexandria Troas was founded in 310 BC by
Antigonus the One-eyed thanks to an influx of populations from
from Cebren, Colone, Hamaxitus, Neandreia and Scepsis.
The city was renamed Alexandreia in 300 BC following
battle of Ipsus, by Lysimachus in memory of the great conqueror.
Imperial coinage was abundant between Commodus and Gallienus.

Arados was located in the Seleucid orbit after the battle of Ipsos
in 301 BC. The city freed itself from this administration in 259 BC.
Arados henceforth dated its coins from the beginning of this new era.
Under the reign of Alexander I Balas, she destroyed Marathus, her neighbour
and ancient enemy. From this date, the city issued a very significant civic
coinage (137-45 BC ) which lasted until
the Caesar era.

  • Beautiful coin thank you

  • Fast shipping with a tracking number and required a signature. I loved that; my packages are always abandoned on my doorstep without an attempt to deliver to a real person.

    I highly recommend them!
