Is this issue during Alexander's reign or by one of his generals?

    I've not really delved into this type much but know how abundantly common obverse depictions of Alexander the Great surely are. I am wondering if anyone happens to know if this is an issue during his reign or perhaps an issue by one of his many surviving generals?

    Looks like it might be Price 373. 325-310BC

    Unlike the silver and gold coinages in the name of Alexander III the aes coinages have not received the same scrutiny. However current scholarship seems to indicate that the title of BASILEOUS wasn't introduced until after the death of Alexander. So it would be most likely that the B A series of aes is posthumous.

    Thank you for this. At 2.6 gm this is the weight of a tetrobol but I'm completely unsure if tetrobol is appropriate for bronze
