These dekadrachms were struck immediately preceding Alexander's death in 323, and were most likely issued, at least in part, in order to give a full Attic Talent - 6000 drachms - to each of the 10,000 veterans Alexander intended to send home. This was a most important gesture since the soldiers had become increasingly unhappy and restive: they had fought for years without respite, they had just returned from Alexander's arduous Indian campaign, and were longing for a return to their homeland. The coins were struck at the mint in Babylon, and hoard evidence shows that the M monogram issue came immediately before that with the ΛΥ monogram; also just prior to issues in the name of Philip III. These dekadrachms are great rarities in Alexander's coinage, the majority of the issue with the M monogram are tetradrachms and staters, which suggests that they were only issued as a form of "prestige" supplement to a payout in the form of more normal coins.
