Coins from Kingdom of Macedonia
Macedonia was an ancient kingdom on the periphery of Archaic and Classical Greece, and later the dominant state of Hellenistic Greece.

The kingdom was founded and initially ruled by the royal Argead dynasty, which was followed by the Antipatrid and Antigonid dynasties. Home to the ancient Macedonians, the earliest kingdom was centered on the northeastern part of the Greek peninsula.

Before the 4th century BC, Macedonia was a small kingdom outside of the area dominated by the great city-states of Athens, Sparta, and Thebes, but during the reign of Philip II, Macedonia subdued mainland Greece and Thrace through conquest and diplomacy.

Philip II's son Alexander III the Great conquered territory that stretched as far as the Indus River. For a brief period, his Macedonian empire was the most powerful in the world.

Macedonian Kingdom

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."

Struck under Menander or Kleito. VF. Attractive style, toned, porous, light marks and scratches. Struck in the name of King Philip III Arrhidaeus, Alexander the Great's half-brother. Philip III and Alexander's infant son, Alexander IV, were made joint kings after Alexander's death. Philip was the bastard son of Philip II and a dancer, Philinna of Larissa. Alexander the Great's mother, Olympias, allegedly poisoned her stepson Philip III as a child, leaving him mentally disabled, eliminating him as a rival to Alexander. Neither Philip III nor Alexander IV was capable of actual rule and both were selected only to serve as pawns. The regents held power, while Philip III was actually imprisoned. In 317, Olympias had Philip murdered in an attempt to ensure the rule of her grandson.
