Ancient Greek Silver Tetradrachms

The tetradrachm was an ancient Greek coin made from silver. The Athenian tetradrachm had the head of the goddess Athena stamped on its obverse and the Owl of Athena on its reverse.

It wasn’t until the coinage of Alexander the Great that a portrait of the ruler was stamped onto the tetradrachm’s obverse.
