The obv. was misread on his poor specimen by Imhoof-Blumer; the rev. legend is not certain. The second word can be read as ΚΑΣΤΟΡΙΞ or ΚΑΣΤΟΡΙΣ; the third has been read as ΣΩΠΡΑ (W. Weiser, in the sale catalogue cited under 4, where it is interpreted as 'son of Sopras'). We are convinced, however, that the second word was correctly read as ΣΩΤΙΡΑ by Imhoof-Blumer. The interpretation we offer here is that the coin, a smaller denomination for an empress, is signed by a woman (cf. 3149–52 below); her name is Kastoris and she is given the title soteira, just as Epigonos, presumably her husband, is given the title philopatris. On this view, both were in some way benefactors of the city.
