The Tetradrachm denomination
A tetradrachm is an ancient greek coin denomination worth four drachms - 24 obols - and weighing around 17.5 grammes Attic standard or 15.6 grammes Rhodian standard.

Tetradrachms on the Attic standard became the de-facto standard for trade and for large payments, and the denomination was used well into Roman times.

The most famous tetradrachm is the Athenian 'Owl'. In Roman times, provincial tetradrachms were usually struck in debased silver or billon.

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."
