Of this type, RPC I notes, "Uncertain. This coin was published by Mi 3.307.22, and is known from a Mionnet cast. The coin [the Mionnet specimen] has been tooled ('mdaille retourche') but may perhaps represent a genuine denomination." Our coin allays the RPC I doubts. The denomination is 1/3 of 18.5g RPC I 2818.

One of the letters on most example of this type or is only known in the Karian script but determining the mint city within Karia is less certain.

|Other| |Ionia|, |Klazomenai,| |Ionia,| |c.| |386| |-| |300| |B.C.|, |AE| |17|
The ruins of Klazomenai (or Clazomenae) are in the modern town Urla near Izmir in Izmir Province, Turkey. It was one of the first cities to issue silver coinage. Clazomenae was attacked by the Lydian king Alyattes II in the 6th century. During the 5th century it was for some time subject to the Athenians, but about the middle of the Peloponnesian War, c. 412 B.C. it revolted. After a brief resistance, it again acknowledged the Athenian supremacy, and repelled a Lacedaemonian attack. In 387 B.C. Klazomenai and other cities in Asia were taken over by Persia, but the city continued to issue its own coins. Under the Romans, Clazomenae was included in the province of Asia, and enjoyed an immunity from taxation.

|Roman| |Syria|, |Northern| |Syria,| |2nd| |to| |3rd| |Century| |A.D.|, |AE| |15|
This type has long been attributed to Pharaoh Nektanebo II. Butcher, however, notes it is quite common in the vicinity of Antioch and in Northern Syria and the obverse style is similar to third century Antiochene zodiacal type coins. He suggests they may have been struck under Hadrian.

Kebren, Troas, 400 - 310 B.C.

|Troas|, |Kebren,| |Troas,| |400| |-| |310| |B.C.|, |AE| |10|
Kebren was in the middle Skamander valley in the Troad region of Anatolia. Its remains have been located in the forested foothills of Mount Ida (modern Kaz Dagi), approximately 7 km to the south of the Skamander. The population of Kebren was both Greek and Anatolian. In the 5th century B.C., Kebren was a member of the Delian League paying tribute to Athens. Following the defeat of Athens at the end of the Peloponnesian War in 404 B.C., Kebren came under the control of Zenis, who ruled on behalf of the Persian satrap Pharnabazos. Kebren was captured by the Spartan commander Dercylidas in 399 B.C., but soon after returned to Persian control. In 360 to 359, the Greek mercenary commander Charidemus briefly captured the city before being repelled by the Persian satrap Artabazos. At some point in the 4th century B.C. Kebren produced coinage depicting a satrap's head as the obverse type, indicating the city's close relationship with its Persian overlords. Kebren ceased to exist as an independent city about 310 B.C., when Antigonus I Monophthalmus founded Antigonia Troas (after 301 B.C. renamed Alexandria Troas) and included Kebren in the synoecism.

|Cyprus|, |Kition,| |Cyprus,| |Pumiathon,| |c.| |362| |-| |312| |B.C.|, |dichalkon|
Kition (Latin: Citium) was a city-kingdom on the southern coast of Cyprus (in present-day Larnaca). According to tradition, it was established in the 13th century B.C. by Achaean Greek settlers, after the Trojan war. By the Classical Period, Kition was one of the principal local powers, along with its neighbor Salamis. Its most famous resident was Zeno of Citium, born c. 334 B.C. in Citium and founder of the Stoic school of philosophy which he taught in Athens from about 300 B.C. The kingdom was under Egyptian domination from 570 to 545 B.C. Persia ruled Cyprus from 545 B.C. In 499 B.C., Cypriot kingdoms (including Kition) joined Ionia's revolt against Persia. Persian rule of Cyprus ended in 332 B.C.
