Note.
Priapus or Priapos was a minor rustic fertility god, protector of livestock, fruit plants, gardens and male genitalia. Priapus is marked by his absurdly oversized permanent erection, which gave rise to the medical term priapism. He became a popular figure in Roman erotic art and Latin literature, and is the subject of the often humorously obscene collection of verse called the Priapeia. Statues of Priapus were sometimes placed on boundaries and hung with signs which threatened sexual assault on trespassers.

AV L CEP is a very rare obv. legend. Varbanov has it listed only for a coin with Priapos on rev. (#2425). Jekov suggests this coin as doubtful.

LAN erroneous for LAM, but there are some open questions too: KOI seems to be erroneous for KAI, magistrate APOLLONITOS couldn't be found until now.

PRIAPOS was born by Aphrodite in Lampsakos/Mysia. Therefore Lampsakos was the centre of warshipping of Priapos. Here his depiction was more like Dionysos who was said to be his father.
