ΑΛΕΞΑΝ  .

Type: rare R1
Cf : SNG Cop70-1var. ; BMC 16 ; Aulock 7546.

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.
---------------------------------------------
F+/VF. Arados: specimen on a small thick flan, well centred with
significant wear, but identifiable.
Dark brown and sand coloured granular patina.

Hemichalque: metal: bronze
Diameter: 15 mm
Weight: 3.05 g

Obverse: head of Zeus, laureate, right.
Reverse: Prow of a galley with triple rostrum.

The date is not visible on this specimen. (Year 109)
Type: rare R1
Cf : HGCS. 10/88 ; Duyrat1881;  GC.6001. 

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.
