This Alexander bronze type, like the first, also features Herakles on the obverse and a soldier's weapons on the reverse.
But in this case the weapons are a gorytos (case for bow and quiver) along with a club, and the bow lies within the gorytos
rather than underneath the quiver.
Often the gorytos is referred to as a bow case, but it also holds arrows as well so is probably best referred to as a gorytos.
Sometimes it's erroneously referred to as an arrow case or quiver, by dealers as well as attribution references,
with no distinction made between the gorytos and quiver bronze types.
SNG Manchester mistakenly referred to it as a bull's head based upon the worn specimen they had to attribute.
Gorytos bronzes are seen less frequently than the quiver bronzes. The mint mark on this particular variety, below the gorytos, is the letter E.

Apollo was worshipped as the patron of colonists at Tarentum, and he was also the patron of the revered Pythagorean religious order at Tarentum, which existed until the late fourth century. The reverse motif of Herakles fighting the Nemean lion was also used on contemporary silver diobols of Tarentum and its colony Herakleia, though the silver issues usually chose the "tondo" scene of a crouched Herakles wrestling the Nemean lion with a stranglehold (a design also used on the Syracusan gold 100 litrae issue of Dionysios I).

In the time this coinage was produced Tarentum was a monarchy, as it had been since its foundation. Though we have little information concerning the early governance of Tarentum, the monarchy was probably modelled on the one ruling over Sparta. According to Herodotus (iii, 136) a certain king Aristophilides ruled over the city in this period.
Since the arrival of the Greeks in the region in the late 8th century BC, a long-running series of skirmishes appears to have taken place between the Tarentines and the indigenous Iapygian tribes (Messapians, Daunians and the Peucetii) who controlled the interior of the Apulian peninsula. Tarentine expansion was therefore limited to the coast because of the resistance of these populations, a situation reflected in their coinage types which are predominantly marine in character.
In c.490 BC the Messapians moved against the Tarentines with a composite force of around 8,000 men including shield infantry, skirmishers, and their skilled cavalry. The Tarentines meanwhile fielded 4,000 citizen hoplites and 1,000 light infantry in support, as well as a combination of light and sword-wielding cavalry. Outside the walls of their city the Tarentines withstood the initial skirmishing and the Messapian charge; despite the superiority of the Messapian cavalry and being greatly outnumbered on foot, the Tarentines appear to have represented their Spartan heritage well in this battle, and were able to claim victory and a temporary respite from the Iapygian attacks. After this defeat the Iapygians would not challenge Taras again for nearly twenty years, but in 473 when they would again come against the Tarentines, they would come in overwhelming numbers.

This wonderful head of Persephone reminds us of Euainetos and his Syracusan Arethusa heads. Ajax on reverse (ΑΙΑΣ Ο ΛΟΚΡΟΣ) was son of Oileus, the king of Locris. He was called the "lesser" or "Locrian" Ajax to distinguish him from Ajax the Great, son of Telamon. The Opuntian Locrians worshiped Ajax as their national hero, and so great was their faith in him that when they drew up their army in battle, they always left one place open for him, believing that, although invisible to them, he was fighting for and among them.

In Greek myths, Apollo slayed the great serpent Python so that he could establish his oracular temple at Delphi. An omphalos marked the spot where he slayed Python and is depicted on ancient coins as an omphalos stone with a serpent wound around it.

This is one of the gorytos bronzes that Price does attribute to Asia Minor, in this case to an uncertain mint in western Asia Minor. Price didn't indicate his reasoning or precedents of his attribution. In the past, this variety was often attributed as an anonymous issue. SNG Tübingen, SNG Cop. and AMNG III/2, for instance, attributed it this way, though McClean and Hunterian give it to Alexander. The inscription consists of just the royal title "Basileos" ("King"), the full meaning of which could be "of King Alexander", or it could refer to another king as this bronze type was issued by others beside Alexander. Along with the inscription, the styling of this particularly variety is also distinctive, particularly Herakles battle-fierce gaze, which may well be meant to refer to Alexander himself. During Alexander's reign the East was more receptive to such statements of regal authority than Greece and Macedonia. The mint mark on this specimen, below the club, is a torch, sometimes called a race torch (from rg.ancients.info/alexander/bronzes.html)

Because the legend is only BASILEWS this type is from the time of the confusion after the death of Alexander the Great. So it is probably Philip III (rover1.3)

After the Roman Republic’s defeat of Macedon at Kynoskephalai in 197 BC, T. Quinctius Flamininus, the victorious general, headed a senatorial commission set up to establish a protectorate in Greece and he pronounced at the Isthmian Games in July of the following year that those Greek areas (including Thessaly) which were formerly under Macedonian control were now free. Flamininus then revived an independent Thessalian League, which was founded in around the year 1000 BC and was later disbanded after Phillip II of Macedon conquered much of the Greek world in the last quarter of the 4th century BC. Under the new League, the coinage comprised solely of silver in three denominations (stater, drachm, and hemidrachm/obol), and could be considered the first truly Thessalian League "federal" coinage. All issues bore the ethnic ΘΕΣΣΑΛΩΝ, along with the responsible magistrates' names, and were likely minted at Larissa, the capital of the League.

Lovely strike from nice detailed high relief die. Struck on a very nice broad flan. Perfectly centered. Choice EF. Toned. Lovely example for the issue.

Ex Pars Coins.

The Chersonesos Peninsula was originally founded by Thracian tribes and was later colonized by the Greeks around the 7th century BC. After the death of Alexander III, the diadoch Lysimachos founded his capital on the peninsula and named it Lysimacheia for the newly created kingdom of Thrace.

Gallipoli peninsula) that struck these coins is uncertain. The coins may have been struck at Cardia by the peninsula as a league, or perhaps they were struck by lost city on the peninsula named Cherronesos. The area was under the control of Athens from 560 B.C. to 338 BC, except for a brief period when it was controlled by Persia. It was taken over by Philip II in 338 B.C.

The frequent test cuts found on these coins attests to their use as an intercity trade currency.
