The Hellenistic period covers the period of Mediterranean history between the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC and the emergence of the Roman Empire as signified by the Battle of Actium in 31 BC and the conquest of Ptolemaic Egypt the following year. In numismatics, Hellenistic coinage corresponds to the artistic styles and standards established by the Kingdom of Macedonia that spread throughout much of the Mediterranean into the Near East and Indian subcontinent follow the death of Alexander the Great.
