Ancient Coinage of Thrace, Agathopolis

Note: Whether Agathoclea / Agathopolis was located in Thrace or somewhere in Asia Minor is still uncertain. Borrell who was one of the first authors to document the coins below, acquired his own coin in or near Izmir. Because several towns in Asia Minor were temporarily renamed in honour of Lysimachos' son, Agathokles, and, with regard to the iconography, it is more likely that Agathopolis was indeed in Mysia or Ionia.
