Mytilene, like all of Lesbos, had close ties to the Macedonian kings and was part of the Anti-Persian alliance formed by Philip II and Alexander 'the Great'. Persian forces conquered the city in 333 BC but were expelled soon thereafter - this is when our coin, which so obviously copies the Tetradrachms of Philip II and Alexander, was most likely issued.
