    I purchased this coin at an estate sale but do not have any history to go with it. The image of the person standing with the bird looks Egyptian but the other sides image of the man with the flowing hair looks Roman. It is approximately 1 inch in diameter and thicker than a quarter in the middle, but tapers off on the edges to the thickness of a quarter. Any help in identifying this coin would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

      Greek: Silver Tetradrachm,
      Kingdom of Macedon, Alexander III, The Great (336-323 BC).

      Phoenician or Syrian mint, c.323-317 BC?
