While reading up on the kings of this era and their lineage, especially the Seleucid Kingdom, I am amazed at the number of intrigues, and in-family murders etc. Being of high ranking blood was definitely not good for your health in those days. It is odd to think that intellectual property theft, ie iconography, was a problem back then as well.
A very interesting post, as I did think that Herakles was a mythical character. It is nice to know what the importance of the war club on the reverse of many of these coins is too.
