Athena, goddess of intelligence and strategic thought.
These cufflinks are a replica of a gold stater, minted in Macedonia in the early 4th century BC.
Alexander's own coin types were the head of Herakles and a seated Zeus on the reverse and a head of Athena (as shown here) and a standing Nike (Victory).
These were the images chosen to decorate the coinage with which Alexander set out to conquer the Persian Empire.
