|Pantikapaion|, |Pantikapaion,| |Tauric| |Chersonesos,| |Thrace,| |5th| |century| |B.C.||hemiobol|NEW
Panticapaeum (Kerch, Ukraine) was an important city and port in Tauric Chersonesos on the western side of the Cimmerian Bosporus. It was founded by Milesians in the late 7th or early 6th century B.C. In the 5th century B.C. it became the capital of the Thracian kings of Bosporus. The last of the kings of Bosporus left it to Mithridates VI Eupator, king of Pontus. After his defeat to Rome, he committed suicide at Panticapaeum in 63 B.C. In that same year, the city was partly destroyed by an earthquake.Panticapaeum

Kios, Bithynia, c. 340 - 330 B.C.

|Bithynia|, |Kios,| |Bithynia,| |c.| |340| |-| |330| |B.C.||1/8| |siglos| |(or| |obol)|NEW
This type is published in two larger denominations, a half siglos (or hemidrachm) and a quarter siglos (or trihemiobol), and both were struck by the magistrate Athenodoros, and other magistrates. We do not know of another 1/8 siglos (or obol) of the type; not from any of the magistrates. Traditionally, the earliest precious metal coinage of Kios has been dated after Alexander the Great's capture of Kios in 334 B.C. More recently, however, Oliver Hoover and other numismatists suggest these Apollo / Prow types were struck on a Persic standard and were probably minted to pay mercenaries to defend against Alexander's invasion, which began in 336 B.C.
