Elaia (BC 450-400) Hemiobol704 views5th century BC. AR Hemiobol (8mm, 0.43g, 3h). Head of Athena left, wearing crested Attic helmet / ΕΛΑΙ around olive wreath, all within incuse square. VF.
Kyme (BC 350-250) Hemidrachm3813 viewsca 350-250 BC. AR Hemidrachm (1.81g). Eagle standing right, head reverted / Forepart of horse right. Lightly toned, good VF, some light scrapes on edge.
Kyme (BC 400-350) Hemiobol394 views4th century BC. AR Hemiobol (0.31g). Forepart horse right / Floral pattern, ΑΙΟΛΟN (N retrograde)? Rare. Unpublished variant with ethnic?
Kyme (BC 400-350) Hemiobol525 views4th cent BC. AR Hemiobol (0.31g). Forepart horse right / Floral pattern, ΑΙΟΛΟΣ. Rare, good fine. Unpublished variant with ethnic?
Kyme (BC 520-470) Tetartemorion524 views5th century BC. AR Tetartemorion (7mm, 0.18g). Horse’s head left / Quadripartite incuse square. Good VF, porosity.

While such coins are generally assigned to an uncertain Thraco-Macedonian mint, the style of the current coin is more refined than any of the horse types in Tzamalis. “Horse/incuse” types were almost certainly minted at multiple locations, and a mint in (western?) Asia Minor would seem logical based on provenances.
Gryneion (BC 350-250) Drachm31 viewsca 4th-3rd centuries BC. AR Drachm (3.14g, 14mm). Laureate head of Apollo right / ΓYPN, mussel shell. gF. Apparently unpublished, extremely rare, with no other silver coinage from this city being known.
Kyme (AD 54-68) AE 15 - Nero & Diva Agrippina Jr520 viewsDiefied Nero and Agrippina Jr., ca 54-59 AD. AE15 (4.30g). ΘEON NEPΩNA KYMAIΩN, Young laureate head of Nero right / ΘЄAN AΓPIΠΠINAN, veiled head of Agrippina Jr. right. Good Fine, brown patina.
Myrina (AD 20) AE 18 - Ti Claudius Drusus (?), son of Claudius I and Urguanilla940 viewsTi Claudius Drusus (?), son of Claudius I and Urguanilla, ca 20 AD. AE18 (3.77g). TI KΛAVΔIOC ΔPOYCOC, bare head right / MYPINAIΩN, laureate draped bust of Apollo right. Extremely rare; only two more known, one in Ashmolean, one in Bibliotheque Nationale. Minor roughness, reverse off center, about very fine.

This is the only issue carrying these names in existence. Excluding Claudius Drusus, the father of Claudius I (his praenomen was Decimus not Tiberius), and Claudius the emperor (he actually had this name, but only until 4 AD), the only remaining Claudius Drusus left is the son of Claudius I and Urguanilla. He was to marry the daughter of Sejanes, but died young in about 20 AD. This and possibly an issue from Clazomenae (RPC I, 2500 ΔPOYCOC HPWC) would be only ones known for this person. The Apollo reverse was tradional at Myrina, coins from this mint are extremely rare for the Julian-Claudian period (totally 3 cited in RPC from 2 issues).
