Note It is not clear that the letter to the left of the bust of the obv. really is a letter; if it is then it seems to be an alpha or a lambda. The rev. is difficult to complete; a name like Pausanias would fit but seems rather long given the relatively large size of the letters. If M begins another word (e.g. an ethnic) then one would expect only one more letter before -anias, to guess from the space available. It is not unlike the coin tentatively attributed to Ceramus (RPC I, 2773A: Uncertain mint in Asia).
