Greek Coins
The history of Ancient Greek coinage can be divided into four periods; the Archaic, the Classical, the Hellenistic and the Roman. The Archaic period extends from the introduction of coinage to the Greek world during the 7th century BC until the Persian Wars in about 480 BC. The Classical period then began, and lasted until the conquests of Alexander the Great in about 330 BC, which began the Hellenistic period, extending until the Roman absorption of the Greek world in the 1st century BC.

All Greek coins were handmade. The design for the obverse was carved into a block of bronze or iron called a die. The design of the reverse was carved into a similar punch. A blank metal disk was cast in a mold, placed between the die and the punch, and struck hard with a hammer, raising the design on both sides of the coin.

The reverse inscription translates to: "of Alexander"

Price attributes this to the mint at Byblos and a time frame of 330-320 BC

Every CNG auction of this coin that I have found going back 10 years attributes the mint to Arados and the time frame to 325-323 BC making it a de facto lifetime issue, and says these were minted under authority of Menes who was Alexander's General and bodyguard. I assume this new info is attributed to a paper by Catharine Lorber but am not sure.

under Stamenes or Archon After Mazaeus died in 328 B.C., Alexander appointed Stamenes as satrap of Babylon. Little is known about him, other than he probably died of natural causes around 323 B.C. when Archon of Pella replaced him. Perdiccas suspected Archon of colluding in the theft of Alexander's corpse and, in 321 B.C., sent Dokimos to replace him. Archon was defeated and died from battle wounds."
