Ancient Coinage of Cilicia, Coropissus


Coropissos lay on the major route from Laranda to Olba and Claudiopolis in southern Asia Minor. It was a thriving town with the status of a "Polis". The modern town of Dag Pazari stands on the site and here too, the bulldozers spared none of the ancient buildings.
