History of the Artifact

The bronze coins struck under King Philip II of Macedon feature a head of Apollo on the obverse with his hair bound in a ‘taenia’ - a headband or ribbon traditionally worn at Greek festivals. The reverse features a youth prancing on a horse which some believe may depict King Philip II as he won the horseback race at the 106th Olympics in 356 BC, the quadriga race at the 107th in 352 BC and the biga race at the 108th in 348 BC, so the rider on his reverses may be himself.

King Philip II of Macedon, commonly known as Philip II, was a significant figure in ancient history during the Hellenistic period. He reigned from 359 to 336 BCE and was the father of Alexander the Great. Philip II is renowned for his military and political achievements, particularly for transforming Macedonia into a powerful and centralized kingdom. Philip II's most notable accomplishment was his development of the Macedonian phalanx, an effective military formation that contributed to his military successes. He also implemented diplomatic strategies to unite various Greek city-states under Macedonian hegemony. His untimely assassination in 336 BCE paved the way for his son, Alexander the Great, to embark on a campaign of conquest that would result in the creation of one of the most expansive empires in history.

    I ordered this coin for my grandson, he loves anything Roman history and was thrilled. I didn’t receive the authentic certificate with it, I contacted the seller and asked if he could send one out to him. He responded right away and is sending it right out. I would recommend to everyone. Very good customer service and arrived early.
