Trofimova (p. 55) believes that the Achilles representation on the obverse of this coin of Pyrrhus is a form of Alexander Imitation.  This grows out of and supports her argument in her second chapter regard ‘The Influence of Portraits of Alexander  on the Hellenistic Iconography of Achilles’ (p.33-58).

An earlier post on this coin and others on Pyrrhus generally.
