History: Alexander III the Great is the son of Philip II of Macedonia and Olympias.
He was born in 356 BC, when Philippe's horses triumphed at the Olympics.
Upon the death of his father, who was assassinated in 336 BC, he became king of Macedonia at the age of twenty. He immediately crushes the Thebans and scours the city that had revolted.
In 334 BC, he moved to Asia and, after the victory of the Granique, set out to conquer the Achaemenid empire, which would lead him to Persepolis, then to the gates of India.
Returning to Babylon in 325, he married Roxane who gave him a son.
Two years later, he died without completing his work, aged thirty-three years.

A very small coin shipped in a very LARGE box ;-) Otherwise, coin is exactly as pictured, delivered cross-Atlantic very quickly, and this was a perfect transaction. Excellent seller. Thank you.

Coin took a while to arrive; little concerned by lack of communication from seller. However, quality of the coin is excellent (better than the description) & far outweighs the delay. Would recommend.
I'm pretty sure the coin I received was not the one pictured in the auction. I'm sorry, for I would have liked that one. However, the one I got was still appropriate for the price paid, so it's a wash
