This large and attractive four drachm piece was minted under Attalus I, King of Pergamon. Attalus is perhaps most famous for defeating the Galatians, a Celtic tribe of Thracian origin, who had been running amok in Asia Minor without opposition. Attalos’ victory was commemorated by a large monument at Pergamon, made famous by a later Roman copy known as, the ‘Dying Gaul’ and revered as a true masterpiece of Roman sculpture.
