A pupil of Aristotle, Alexander learned the Greek ways of life and the ideals of Greek civilization and spread Greek culture and influence throughout his empire. The very popular Ancient Greek coin depicting the head of Herakles on one side and the Greek god Zeus enthroned on the other, circulated during his reign and continued to be struck well after his death in 323 BC
