Cyrene was a Greek city in current Libya. At the time when this coin was struck (just after Alexander’s death) Cyrene was controlled by Ptolomy I. However, it does not have the Egyptian flavor of many other coins of the Ptolemaic dynasty. Instead, it represents two very well known Greek deities that had a big importance in the city at that time: Nike in a Quadriga and Zeus. Statues of Nike have been found in the ruins of Cyrene, which shows how important this Goddess was for the city. Regarding Zeus, he was also related to Amun (or Ammon), the major Ancient Egiptian deity.
