We suggest below that the hoard could be related to the demobilized soldiers of Craterus and/or the First War of the Diadochi (321 BC). Alexander hoards from Anatolia of the late fourth century BC are of particular interest because of their scarcity and historical importance. Despite the difficulties in information retrieval, the Turkish collector said that the hoard was complete. We cannot of course guarantee this, and the group could perhaps be only a part of the total found. All the coins were sold and their whereabouts cannot be traced.
