Ancient Coinage of Bithynia, Dia

Note: the Thracian specialist Imhoof-Blumer, in Griechische Münzen, states that coins previously attributed to Dia, Bithynia (e.g. Head, Hedervar etc) were misread or misinterpreted and that Dia, Bithynia struck no coins. During its history, Kabeira in Thrace was re-named Diospolis (then Neokaisareia) and it is to this town that coins with the legend DIAS should be attributed.
