Capstone Acquisitions presents this beautiful Arsinoe II Gold Octodrachm NGC CHXF 5x3 - A  Top 100 Ancient Coin.

Arsinoe II was a Ptolemaic Greek Princess who was co-ruler of Egypt with her brother/husband Ptolemy II Philadelphus. Philadelphus, of course, meaning “the sibling-loving.” No wonder Philadelphia is called the “City of Brotherly Love” today. Anyway, she won three chariot races in the Olympic Games of 272 B.C. and was worshipped as a God after her death around 270/68 B.C.

The Octadrachm is one of the largest coins of the Ancient World at nearly a full ounce of gold. Whoever held the gold quite literally held the power, they could buy whatever size army that was needed to conquer nations.

The reverse cornucopia is a symbol of abundance and nourishment, a classic display of the massive wealth of the Ptolemaic Kingdom.

We are selling history, one coin at a time.
