Weight: 16.45 g; Diameter: 27 mm; Authenticity guaranteed. Lysimachus c. 360 BCE – 281 BCE) was a Macedonian officer and diadochus (i.e. "successor") of Alexander the Great, who became a basileus ("King") in 306 BCE, ruling Thrace, Asia Minor and Macedon. One of Lysimachus's great personal friends was known to be Philippides of Kephale. The decree for Philippides makes it evident that he was with the king during the revolution and the king himself often spoke well of Philippides efforts to the Athenian ambassadors. He also convinced the King to render much service after Ipsos, securing the release of the prisoners whom Lysimachus had taken.
