Macedonian Kingdom, Kassander, 319 - 297 B.C.
Kassander was the son of Antipater and Regent for the young son of Alexander the Great. Notorious for his cruelty, in 311 B.C., he executed Alexander IV and his mother Roxana. We can date this coin, with the royal title BAΣIΛEΩΣ, to after 305 B.C. when he declared himself king. -- Greek Coins and Their Values by David Sear
