    I put this one aside early this year and kinda forgot about it. It's certainly an Alexander 'the Great' Ae type but I just can't seem to nail it down. Here it is:

    Obv: Head of Herakles right, wearing lion's skin
    Rev: ΑΛΕΞΑΝΔPOY between club and bow; within bow ΛY(.) <First two letters are somewhat clear but can't make out the last>; T below
    Size is 16mm, 4.3gms

    Unusual with just a bow and no bowcase, and the legend within. Any ideas at all?

    The style looks decidedly unofficial.

    I was thinking the same. Maybe it's Danube Celts?

    Yes looks very unofficial both obverse and reverse.
