Salve

La presenza di questo simbolo su un bronzo della confederazione macedone ai tempi di Marco Aurelio

mi ha indotto alla ricerca di un fulmine alato sulle monete del Grande.

Stando alla descrizione del Price, troviamo il ‘winged thunderbolt’ in esergo sui tetradrammi coniati ad Asso (Troade) tra circa 188 a. C. e circa 160 a. C., con numeri di catalogo 1605 e 1606.

Questo è l’esemplare della CNG 375, ex Elsen 93.

TROAS, Assos. Circa 188-160 BC. AR Tetradrachm (34mm, 16.70 g, 12h). In the name and types of Alexander III of Macedon. Head of Herakles right, wearing lion skin / Zeus Aëtophoros seated left; in left field, griffin seated left above monogram; winged thunderbolt in exergue. Price 1605. VF, toned, light scratches and marks, some weakness of strike on reverse.

Il fulmine alato si trova anche nel campo a sinistra dei tetradrammi imitativi di Alessandro coniati in Egitto sotto Tolomeo I, come in questo esemplare della CNG 90.

Un esemplare del tetradramma al post # 3 è proposto in Vcoins al ragguardevole prezzo di US$ 2,500.00 (ca 1.900 €), più del quadruplo del precedente.
