Note See RPC 3237. There are also other coins with the names (on their own) of Xenarkos, Demetrios, Kapiton (Capito), Sostratos and Kuinti[ (Quinti[ ]), discussed by H. Nicolet, 'Monnaies de bronze de Cilicie (Séleucie du Kalykadnos)', RN 1971, pp. 26-37. Nicolet offers an early imperial date as a possibility for them, which seems likely in view of the Roman names.
