Notes:     (1) Agora Auction 23: Lot No. 61; (2) SNG BN lists the description for both 956 and 957 the same; Athena standing left, holding a patera over altar and spear, shield leaning at right. However, the plates show two variations; both with and without an altar. The city of Germe is just as often listed in Lydia as it is in Mysia, in the standard references.
