Ancient Coinage of Mysia, Germe


Note: Because renowned numismatists and academics (Wroth, Barclay Head, Ehling, Imhoof et al) believe that, of the two towns named Germe in the region of Lydia/Mysia (Germa ad Caicus and Germe ad Rhyndakos), it was only the Mysian town which most likely minted coins, I have merged the two city pages into one to avoid confusion.
