Notes:     While most Black Sea issues with grapes are assigned to Dionysopolis, those issues exhibit a fairly consistent style. This piece does not conform to that style, and Price was reluctant to place some issues with grapes at Dionysopolis, opting instead to assign them to an uncertain mint along the Black Sea (Price 1324–6). Such an attribution is likewise appropriate for this coin.
