The article briefly discusses the economic and political significance of the Alexander III ("the Great") type silver tetradrachm and publishes three of his coins currently held by the Rhodes University Classics Museum. Based on stylistic elements, they are classified as from the Amphipolis and Arados mints and were probably minted during his lifetime. Two further tetradrachms from the empires of Alexander's successors, Ptolemy II and Seleucus IV, are also published.
