MACEDONIAN EMPIRE.Alexander III The Great 336-323 BC.
AR.Tetradrachm.Posthumus issue struck circa.325-323 BC.Mint of BABYLON.
( 17.11g, 25.4mm, 8h)
Beardless youthful bust right of Herakles wearing lions scalp.
Reverse.ΑΛΕΞΑΝΔΡΟΥ , Zeus enthroned left, both feet resting on stool, holding eagle in outstretched right hand and sceptre in left, astragalos in left field, monogram between legs of throne.
Ref: Price 3610
Good very fine; scarce.

The rule of thumb is that Zeus' legs together are lifetime issues ( in spite of the fact that we do have posthumus  issues with the royal title BAΣΙΛΕΩΣ with legs together ) and where the right foot in drawn behind left posthumus issues.Here it seems we have a posthumus issue in a transitional style where the left leg is drawn behind the right.
