In 168 BC, the last Macedonian king, Perseus, was defeated at Pydna by the Romans. Macedon was then divided into four republics, with their capitals at Amphipolis, Pelagonia, Pella and Thessalonica. It was not until 158 BC that the Roman Senate allowed three of these four territories to strike coinage. This tetradrachm was struck between the years 158-149 BC and contains on its obverse a Macedonian shield with the bust of Artemis, the sister of Apollo, on its center. The reverse shows the club of Hercules which alludes to Hercules’ slaying of the Cretan bull.
