If anyone has access to the Coin Hoards II (1976) volume (reference below), I'd be grateful if they could advise of the find date and the burial date for the Batasani Hoard identified in the volume as hoard number 65 (CH 2.65).

If possible I'd also appreciate advice of the number of Susa mint tetradrachms in the hoard struck in the name of either Alexander and/or Philip.

Price records an example of each of Price 3832 and 3840, tetradrachms in the name of Alexander, from this hoard but no other details.

457 Coins found in a "Pot hoard".

Contents:

Alexander III 362
Philip III 46
Seleucus I 37
Antiochus I 2

Barbarous 6

Disposition: Rimnicu Vilcea 450; Craiova 7.

No mention of the "number of Susa mint tetradrachms" I am afraid.

I hope this helps,

Thank you Walter. This is a most useful summary.

It enables me to complete the the details of this find in a list of hoards containing early Alexandrine coinage from Susa.

Interestingly, the earliest documented find of Susa coinage is the Akcakale Hoard c. 317-316 BC, while it is not represented in the Demanhur Hoard 318 BC that contained examples from every Alexander mint active before 320 BC. This carries implications for the dating of Susa's output. I needed the date of the Batasani Hoard to complete the picture, the early third century BC date and content summary confirmed my suspicions based on my reading of Price.
