Note Abbreviations in obv. legend presumably stand for ΚΑΙΣΑΡ ΣΕΒΑΣΤΟΣ. 2815-16 might be thought to be attributable to Miletopolis, where indeed the B coin (2815/1) is housed. But the newly discovered companion piece (2816) makes this unlikely as a bust of Men does not seem appropriate for Miletopolis, because the god is not attested there. Miletus also seems unlikely, as the coins are very different from known products of that city (1150-8). It is not impossible that the coins are modern.
