An amazing ancient artwork - 3rd Century Alexander the Great Roman Gold Medallion

Part of the Aboukir Treasure, a sensational cache found in 1902 at Aboukir, Egypt, northeast of Alexandria. This medallion portrays the noble visage of Alexander the Great (356–323 BC) as an invincible war hero holding a spear and shield. It is now on display in the Bode Museum, Berlin, Germany.
