Description
As the successors to Alexander the great, the Seleucid dynasty ruled the Syrian empire for many centuries. At the crossroads of east and west, the Seleucid courts were famous for their luxury and splendor. This silver coin, bearing the image of one of the more interesting Seleucid kings, evokes the grandeur of that era. Even after centuries of change, such a coin still radiates the impression of power and authority. As we hold it in our hands today, we connect directly with the richness of that vanished world. - (FJ.4472)
