At the time of his death at age 46, Philip II was the most successful king Macedon had produced: streamlining the military, consolidating power, and successfully defeating the Spartans, the Scythians, and the Achaemenids. When he was stabbed to death on his way to the theater in October of 336 BCE, he was in the early stages of a campaign to liberate the Greek cities of Anatolia from the Persians. Had he lived, Philip would likely have shored up his position in Asia Minor but gone no further. His son and successor proved much more ambitious—and much more successful. Alexander the Great conquered all of the Persian Empire, pushing well into India, and is widely considered the greatest military leader of all time. -This is a genuine bronze coin struck in Macedon during the reign of Philip II (359-336 BCE). On the obverse is the head of Apollo. The reverse shows a young man, believed to be the youthful Alexander the Great, on horseback.
