Product Description

Thracian gold Stater minted 88-86 BC during the reign of Mithradates VI.

Obverse: Diademed head of the deified Alexander the Great wearing the Horn of Ammon, serpent behind head, symbol at neck.
Reverse: Athena seated on throne, holding Nike in right hand, left arm resting on shield. Trident across bottom.

Custom mounted into an 18k yellow gold bezel pendant, measuring approximately 1 1/4 inch from the top of the bail to the bottom of the bezel, 7/8 inch across.

Mithradates VI was considered a "Showy King", a plotter and skillful survivor who tried to associate himself with Alexander's heritage. This coin was designed in the name of Lysimachos, who was one of Alexander's most famous and loyal generals and succeeded Alexander as the King of Thrace. Mithradates VI is best remembered for unsuccessfully trying to unite all Greek speaking people against Rome.
