Silver Philip II tetradrachm coin, the obverse with the head of Zeus, the reverse with a King on horseback with inscriptions. The accession of Philip II to the Macedonian throne in 359 BC marked the beginning of a new chapter in the history of the Greek World. Having made himself master of Greece by a mixture of military skill and diplomacy, he was free to pursue his greatest ambition - the conquest of the Persian Empire. But the assassin's sword, 336 BC, prevented Philip from realizing this dream and the invasion of Asia was undertaken instead by his son Alexander, known to posterity as 'the Great.'
