    Beautiful rendering of an important coin. After years of languishing under Macedonian rule, Thebes was granted autonomy by Demetrios Poliorketes in 287 BC. Among the rights recovered was the right to strike a civic coinage, and this magnificent Hellenistic tetradrachm was the first series for the rejuvenated city. Poseidon was a patron god of king Demetrios.
