Moriaseis, ThraceAnd now there are eleven (that I know of and oh, there's another coin of a possible new denomination recently described!) coins of the Thraco-Macedonian tribe known as the Moriaseis as spoken of by Pliny, "in the coastal region of Pontos live Moriseni and Siton, the ancestors of the singer Orpheus" (Nat. History 4, 41). Coin #1 is the original described by Dr. Peter R. Franke. Coin #2 is my coin (second known). Coin #3 is the third know (CNG 346 lot 27). Coins #4-11 from various auctions (references available).
