This famous type, with kneeling archer holding a bow and spear interpreted as a Great King, was struck during the long reign of the Persians (Circa 450-330 B.C.). This period of time means that the 'Great King' here could be Artaxerxes I to Darius III (defeated by Alexander III, The Great). The reverse is just a crude oblong punch. This is a rather nice example with two small countermarks, probably the signets of money changers.
This AR Siglos weighs 5.55 gm and is 11 mm in diameter. S4682
