Ancient Coinage of Lydia, Gordus-Julia



Also called Julia-Gordus. Modern Giordiz, near the sources of the River Hyllus, or Phrygius, later called Glaucus, a northern tributary of the Hermus.
Note: Some catalogs read the reverse legend of semi-autonomous coins clockwise from top right, not clockwise from bottom left, so basically a coin with a legend given as IOYΛIEΩN ΓOΡΔHNΩN can be the same as a similar coin with ΓOΡΔHNΩN IOYΛIEΩN.
