More than 250 silver coins dating back to the time of Alexander the Great were unearthed in northern Syria, a Syrian archaeologist said Thursday.

"Some of the coins bear the inscription King Alexander in Greek, while others say Alexander or carry the name of King Philip, most likely referring to his father."

Sounds like coins of Philip AND Alexander...although the coins on the photos I saw are all Alexander tetradrachms!

Hellenistic found In Syria. What do the FYROMian academicians have to say about this? Are they really hellenistic or maybe they are ancient Yugoslav?

----------

All Macedonian coins with any writing at all prior to the Roman conquest and even after the Roman conquest have Greek writing on them. The denominations are Greek (drachma). Here are some more:

"It should be noted that there is no connection between the Macedonians of the time of Alexander the Great who were related to other Hellenic tribes and the Macedonians of today, who are of Slavic Origin and related to the Bulgarians. "

Greek coins in the Hermitage Museum

Hellenistic kingdoms:

The GREEK world penetrated deep into Central Asia in the centuries after the invasion of Alexander the Great. The coins of the Greek kings of Bactria and north-western India illustrate the mingling of GREEK and native cultures. This coin shows a GREEK king wearing a local headdress on the obverse and the GREEK god Poseidon, representing the Indian trident-bearing god Shiva, on the reverse.
