dc.descriptionA valuable Hellenistic silver coin (tetradrachm) of Ptolemy I, struck in 323-317 BC in Memphis or Alexandria in Egypt. The head is that of Zeus Ammon (Greco-Egyptian hybrid deity) and on the other side is an eagle standing on a thunderbolt. Egyptian priests avowed that their Macedonian conqueror, Alexander the Great, was the son of Zeus Ammon, and his Ptolemaic successors seem to have continued that belief.en_US
