Antiochus I Soter Tetradrachm


Recommended Posts

Seleucid Empire, Antiochos I Soter (281-261 BC) AR Tetradrachm, mint of Magnesia ad Sipylum, 16.73g. Diademed head of Antiochos I facing right. Rev. ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ – ΑΝΤΙΟΧΟY, Herakles, holding club, seated left on rock draped with lion skin, monograms in exergue.

I really like this Herakles reverse because it's a bit harder to come across, most of the Seleucids that come up have Apollo as the deity. I was very happy to find this one at auction last year 😄
