Please don't get all jumpy about the rules here ...

It's a PUN folks - not asking for $price, but for the MJ Price book reference on this coin type if someone has a copy and can find this silver drachm.  It'd be helpful to learn Price's reference number and his notion of mint location and time period of issue. 

Couldn't resist Smiley  Might have worked better on April 1 but, nevertheless...

Thank you,

Looks like exact reference to that monogram.  Does Price have a plate illustration of the type to compare style, etc.?

If P65B is the only ref. to this monogram and/or style, etc. on a silver drachm in Price then we've got a winner!  Thanks for playing Smiley 

The dates suggest very shortly after Alexander's death, so maybe it would be an issue of Phillip III? 

If anyone else has an alternative suggestion or more info from some other reference than Price, please chime right in.

This is the only one with this mint control alone (i.e. unaccompanied by another mint mark, symbol or monogram).

No image of the coin in Price but you can find it on ANS Mantis or Pella databases, for as Price notes (in the entry extract above) the type is in the ANS collection

http://numismatics.org/pella/results?q=P65B (four examples are to be found here)

Style: similar obverse and reverse style to ANS 1952.123.166 - probably from the same die engraver's hand... http://numismatics.org/collection/1952.123.166

The coin bears the legend PHILIPPOU  so is clearly a Phillip III issue. This ls also indicated by Price's "P" prefix to the identifying number of the type (P65B).

As for the attribution and dating rationale refer Price's comment attached below...
