Additional comment
Mint: Callatis? The same symbol can be found at Istros.
Denomination: 1/4 mina?
Symbol: Modius (basket with three wheat ears, placed on a boat)? Knife on stool?
Killen 2017: Bei diesem Gewicht und den folgenden ist zu überlegen, ob es sich um offizielle Gewichte aus Kallatis (s. Kat. Kall) handeln kann. Als Parasemon von Kallatis wurde bereits die Keule in Verbindung mit Bogen (z. T. Gorytos) identifiziert.
