* The burial date is problematical, the exact 
        composition of the hd. being uncertain. 
        It is not clear from the account in the 
        RN that all non-Alexanders really 
        belong and there is the possibility of 
        adulteration in the Alexander record. 
        As Newell points out, the absence of 
        issues of Philip III and the brilliant 
        condition of Ace and Sidon coins of 
        324 B.C. suggest a burial of about that 
        date. One Alexander of Babylon 
        (Sotheby 252) was, however, struck 
        after Philip's death; it may be in-
        trusive. A detailed analysis of the hd. 
        has been prepared by U. Westermark
