Origin: These bronze tetrachalkon were struck under Philip II, an ancient king of the Greek kingdom of Macedon and the father of Alexander the Great. The obverse shows the god Apollo, likely meant to be a representation of the king, and the reverse shows a youth on horseback. The lettering reads "ΦΙΛΙΡΡΟΥ," which is Philip's name in Greek.

Philip is known for his military conquests and political reforms that transformed Macedonia into a formidable empire. Under his rule, Macedonia became the dominant power in Greece, and Philip II initiated a series of military campaigns that expanded the kingdom's territory and influence.

Philip was a skilled military strategist who reorganized and modernized the Macedonian army, creating a formidable fighting force that was capable of conquering much of Greece. He also implemented political reforms that centralized power and increased the authority of the monarchy. Philip II was assassinated in 336 BC, and his son Alexander the Great succeeded him as king, continuing his legacy of military conquests and expansion.

Each coin comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
