From the Anthemion collection, USA.

This coin type has long been ascribed to the Bisaltai, one of the powerful Thraco-Macedonian tribes so active in the late 6th and early 5th centuries. The weight of the evidence now points to it being the earliest issue of Alexander I when he was allied with the tribes against the Persians; he presumably struck coins with types that were acceptable to his allies and would, in fact, symbolize their closeness.
