- Note: Moushmov does not list the individual combinations of obv. legends, bust types and reverse legends, only the reverse type. For more precise identification please see the Varbanov volumes, BMC or other books available which cover coins from this city.
- Note: Some legends have OV ligate, with the O on the V, or the V on the O. (described as "8" below). This is deliberate, often seen on coins of Thrace and does not mean that the engraver had originally omitted a letter in error !
