Yes it's a tetradrachm . What do you mean in the ballpark ?

I'm not sure I understand this:

Are you saying you won them at auction but you're thinking about not paying? If you bid at auction, it's a promise to pay. If you then refuse to pay, people won't sell you coins or let you bid again.

But if you just want a second opinion on the price, then (just initial reaction, without having looked up comparison prices on everything) I think it's probably between "you did fine" and "that's a pretty good deal!" Mainly because there's a nice tetradrachm in there, as others have said. I definitely don't look at it and think "way too much" or anything.

Doesn't matter if it's a good purchase or not. You entered into a contract when bidding on those items and are obligated to pay for them.

What an odd lot. The tet is very nice besides the cut. I'd say what you paid is about right for it, though I haven't bothered to look up the attribution.

The other coins aren't really worth much. It seems strange to pair them.

Since you've already won this lot, can you post which auction house?

They're all from this auction:

https://www.biddr.com/auctions/damarisauction/browse?a=2752&p=2

As you suspect, the other coins combine for a fairly low total relative to the tet.

It looks like the auction happened back on the 23 and 24 of July. Assuming it took a week or two to send out the invoice, you are probably close to defaulting on the payment and having to pay the 12% penalty interest. Usually once you've won the auctions you bid on, it's best to pay up as soon as possible, as having to pay the penalty cost is completely avoidable.

One other note: it looks like the coins you've shown were not sold as a lot, but individually. The first tet is Lot 124 and was awarded at EUR 190. That means the rest of the coins were won at EUR 100. Not sure if that changes much, this is not my area of collecting.

Just a minor point, the other coins were won for a total hammer of 40 EUR but the buyer's premium + shipping brings the total from 230 to 290 EUR.

Dont forget to tack on shipping 

Invoices always seem to end up costing more than you calculated

I'm not sure - but with all my biddr auctions so far it was like this - that the biddr system generates the invoices automatically - and that the invoice appears in the account the next day after the end of the auction at the latest. With Biddr I have never had to wait 1-2 weeks for an invoice. As I said - I am of the opinion that this is even generated automatically by the system.
