Among the rarest and most desirable of all ancient Greek coins, the famed decadrachms of Alexander the Great were struck at Babylon from the bullion seized after the city's conquest from the Achaemenid Persians. The types follow the huge emissions of Alexander's tetradrachms, sporting the head of the mighty Herakles wearing his lion's skin on the obverse, and the father of the Olympian pantheon, Zeus, seated on the reverse. There has long been speculation that the portrait of Herakles features the likeness of Alexander himself, but there is no sure evidence that this is the case. There are only twenty or so Alexander decadrachms known to exist, and most of those were discovered in 1973 in what has become known as the 'Babylon' Hoard. The known examples suggest there were at least three separate emissions, and the paucity of remaining pieces suggests that the denomination may have served a ceremonial purpose - perhaps given as presentation pieces given to high ranking officers or possibly even to soldiers who had distinguished themselves in the conquest of Persia. Alexander was known for giving largesse, and it is tempting to think that he may have taken a personal role in their distribution.

Before ruling in the mountainous interior of Anatolia, Tigranes II spent many years as a hostage in the court of Mithradates II of Parthia. When he was 40, Tigranes I died and Tigranes II was able to 'purchase' his freedom by ceding to Parthia a large part of Media Atropatene. Once on the throne he quickly subdued the local barons of Armenia, who hitherto had paid only nominal submission to the king, thus centralizing his rule with a tight grip. He then went on to invade his neighbors, expanding his kingdom in all directions at their expense. During the First Mithradatic War between Mithradates VI of Pontos and Rome, Tigranes was careful to maintain the appearance of neutrality all the while secretly supporting Mithradates. Subsequently, however, he allied with Pontos overtly, marrying Mithradates' daughter, Cleopatra, and sheltering Mithradates when he had been defeated by Rome. This, of course, brought Armenia into direct conflict with Rome, and in two engagements with Lucullus, the Roman consul in charge of pursuing the war against Mithradates, Tigranes was soundly defeated. Lucullus, however, was not successful in capturing either Mithradates or Tigranes, and so after years of conducting an inconclusive war he was recalled to Rome and replaced by Pompey the Great. Pompey was much more effective. He quickly brought Tigranes to heal, forcing him to give up the territories he had conquered during his long reign in return for allowing him to remain on his throne.
