Silver Tetradrachm, Egypt

Silver tetradrachm featuring the diademed head of Ptomely I (305-283 BC) of Egypt, facing right, on the obverse. The reverse bears a strutting eagle with wings furled, facing left, with King Ptolemaios written in Greek lettering. The Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt was founded in 305 BC by Ptolemy I Soter, one of Alexander the Great's former Generals. It covered a large geographic area, with Alexandria as its capital city. The Kingdom ended with the death of Cleopatra in 30 BC
