Obverse: Laureate Head of Apollo Facing Right Reverse: Apollo Gyrnios Advancing Right, Holding Branch and Philale, Omphalos and Amphora at his Feet, Inscription, “MYRINAIWN,” and Monogram to the Left Myrina was one of the twelve cities that comprised the Aeolian League. Aeolia was a region that covered the west coast of Asia Minor. However, the word, “Aeolia,” is not a geographical term. Instead, it refers collectively to the cities founded by the Aeolians, a branch of the Hellenic people. This coin was minted in Myrina during the 2nd Century B.C. Believed to have been of some importance during Hellenistic times, Myrina was located northeast of Kyme and was overshadowed by its more important neighbor. The Greek inscription, “MYRINAIWN,” translated as “Myrinaion” means “of” or “belonging to the people of Myrina.” Origin: City of Myrina Circa: 165 BC Collection: Numismatic Style: Aeolian Medium: Silver
