Ancient Coins of Mysia (Other Cities and Uncertain Mints)

Mysia is the northwestern region of Anatolia (Asia Minor) located on the shore of the Propontis (Marmara Sea) between Troas and Bithynia. The chief physical features of Mysia are the two mountains, Mount Olympus at (7600 ft) in the north and Mount Temnus in the south. The most important cities were Pergamon in the valley of the Caïcus, and Cyzicus on the Propontis. The whole sea-coast was studded with Greek towns, several of which were places of considerable importance; thus the northern portion included Parium, Lampsacus and Abydos, and the southern Assos, Adramyttium. Further south, on the Eleatic Gulf, were Elaea, Myrina and Cyme.

Adramytion, Mysia, 2nd Century B.C.

|Other| |Mysia|, |Adramytion,| |Mysia,| |2nd| |Century| |B.C.|, |AE| |22|
Adramytteion was a coastal town northwest of Pergamon in Mysia, said to be founded by Adramys, brother of King Kroisos. In classical times, Adramyttium received settlers from Athens and Delos. It later belonged to the Roman province of Asia, whose capital was Ephesus. The ancient city with its harbor has entirely disappeared. Paul, while being taken as prisoner from Caesarea to Rome, embarked upon a ship belonging to Adramyttium (Acts 27:2). It conveyed him only to Myra, in Lycia, from which he sailed on an Alexandrian ship for Italy.

Manius Aquillius, governor of the province of Asia from 129 to 126 B.C., rebuilt the road that connected Adramyttium and Smyrna. During the First Mithridatic War, the strategos Diodorus had the city council killed and gave control to Mithridates VI, King of Pontus. In 88 B.C., Mithridates ordered the execution of all Roman settlers. At Adramyttium, the Romans were driven into the sea and slaughtered. At the end of the war, Xenocles of Adramyttium, was sent to Rome to defend the actions of the city. Adramyttium, was deprived of its autonomy, and was henceforth obligated to pay regular taxes to Rome. According to the Acts of the Apostles, whilst en route to Rome, St. Paul departed Caesarea Maritima on a ship from the city of Adramyttium which took him to Myra in Lycia.
