Babelon TraitÚ lists two minting cities named Dikaia. He wrote that Dikaia, Thrace was near Abdera and its coins tended to show the head of Herakles. Dikaia, Macedonia was on the Chalcidean coast, to the north of Potidea and across the river from Pydna. Its coins tended to show a bull, a bull's head, or the forepart of a bull.
