59-16 B.C. Philip I Philadelphus under Julius Caesar/Augustus Silver Tetradrachm

59-16 B.C. Philip I Philadelphus under Julius Caesar/Augustus Silver Tetradrachm

Available by special purchase, these scarce silver Tetradrachms were struck under Julius Caesar and Augustus. These special coins still display attractive luster, even after more than 2,000 years.

Beautifully detailed and hand struck in the city of Antioch, once the capital of the Seleucid (Syria) Empire, the coins feature the portrait of Philip I Philadelphus, who ruled from circa 95-84/83 B.C. and was among the last of the Seleucid kings.

Philip I became ruler and later gained control of Antioch, but civil war disrupted the kingdom, as various family factions attempted to conquer it all. The Armenian king drove Philip out and later, in 64 B.C., the empire became a province of the Roman Republic. Although the Seleucid kingdom vanished, its coins, bearing a portrait of Philip I, continued for decades as Roman provincial coinage. Hear the clash of swords and recall Rome’s rise to power with this scarce silver coin.
