REV: BAΣΙΛΕΩΣ ΑΛΕΞΑΝΔΡΟΥ (BASILEOS ALEXANDROU), double cornucopiae bound with a fillet, club in left field

Zabinas, the "bought one", the pretender king who spent most of his
pathetic reign fighting Demetrius II and Antiochus VII. He failed to ward
off Antiochus and was forced to plunder the temples of Antioch in order to
come up with getaway money. Unfortunately he was captured and forced to
commit suicide.

Alexander_The_Great_Gorytos~0.JPG
Alexander The Great GorytosAlexander The Great, bronze, gorytos type, four chalkoi (hemiobol), 336 - 323 BC, 17mm, 4.4g
Western Asia Minor, M.J. Price 322, Müller 1699, SNG Saraglos 843, SNG Milano 145,
SNG Stockholm 284, SNG Cop. 1059, McClean 3516.
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.

Per Curtis Clay, Forvm Ancient Coins:
Date exactly 139, as specified by the emperor's title COS II.
Antoninus became COS II on 1 Jan. 139, COS III on 1 Jan. 140.
Probably spring 139 until the end of the year, since at the beginning of 139 Antoninus was still using a longer legend form and was not yet P P.

Pius was acclaimed Imperator by his troops for the second time in 142
(the first time right after he succeeded Hadrian on the throne)
after the Romans beat the Brigantes in Britannia.
Pius, however, did not command the victorious troops.
In fact, he never left Italy during his reign.

Per Curtis Clay:
RIC 818, by mistake, omits COS IIII from the obverse legend, though citing Cohen 499, who correctly gives the COS IIII that is found on all specimens of the coin!
Actually Cohen 499 makes this mistake too, so it's one that RIC took over from Cohen, not bothering to check Cohen's description against actual specimens of the coin in the BM and other collections and catalogues.

This reverse type comes in two variants, with the she-wolf either looking straight ahead, or turning her head back to look at the twins, as on this coin. This second variant is definitely the scarcer of the two: not represented in our Forvms photofile, nor in CoinArchives according to my (Curtis Clay) perhaps inadequate search. Strack 945 lists five museum specimens and one in an auction catalogue, apparently all that he knew, meaning that this variant is missing from the rich collections in Paris and Vienna.

Ariobarzanes was an ally of Pompey, but after their defeat Julius Caesar received him well and kept his position.
He later refused to aid Cassius. Caesar's assassins declared him a traitor, invaded Cappadocia and executed him.

In 333 B.C., after Alexander took Perga peacefully, Aspendos sent envoys to offer surrender if he would not take the taxes and horses formerly paid as tribute to the Persian king.
Agreeing, Alexander went on to Side, leaving a garrison behind. When he learned they had failed to ratify the agreement their own evnvoys had proposed, Alexander marched to the city.
The Aspendians retreated to their acropolis and again sent envoys to sue for peace. This time, however, they had to agree to harsh terms -
they would host a Macedonian garrison and pay 100 gold talents and 4.000 horses annually.
