Tabala, Lydia, 178 - 180 A.D.
There is almost nothing about Tabala online or in the numismatic references. Online there are conflicting opinions of its location. In BMC Lydia head writes, 'Tabala, on the north side of the Hermus, near the modern village Burgas Kale, where there still stands a medieval citadel which once commanded the entrance of the Hermus gorge."
