Notes:     Extremely Rare early Kallatis type Most Lysimachos-type staters of Kallatis were issued under Mithradates IV during the First Mithradatic War, but this particular coin is of an earlier style and is not recorded in DeCallataÿ's study of the Mithradatic Era. Also, Pick, in AMNG, notes that this coin was not likely issued under Mithradates.
