This Macedonian bronze coin was minted in the name of Kassander, the third official ruler of Macedonia after the death of Alexander the Great. The denomination of these coins is not known for certain, though they are sometimes called hemiobols or tetrachalkons by modern scholars.
After the death of Alexander the Great, his empire was left without a clear successor. This led to a series of conflicts known as the Wars of the Diadochi, where Alexander's former generals and officials fought for control over different parts of his vast empire.
Though he did not play a part in the power struggle immediately following Alexander's death, Kassander later seized the throne by executing Alexander the Great's son, Alexander IV. He then founded the Antipatrid dynasty, and ruled from 305 BCE until his death in 297 BCE.
