Reseeded to Arados

In Houghton´s later publication he links Price 3332 to Price P165 due to the unarguable obverse similarities and thus seeds 3332 to Arados and not Marathos as first assumed. This Alexander issue was the last coin to be struck before the mint in Arados closed in 320 B.C.

We´re pretty certain that the dating of this series can be accurately placed between 328-320 B.C, this due to the huge find of 8000 tetradrachms found in the Demanhur hoard, Egypt.
