Alexander only allowed selected artists to portray him. His image was a flattering and realistic one, the face youthful and clean-shaven, the hair long and curly. On this coin, Alexander’s official image is combined with the ram’s horn of the Egyptian god Amun. The divine attribute was added to signify Alexader’s deification, which took place during his lifetime.
