I picked this up today on account of its pretty high state of preservation, albeit one side is noticeably duller than the other. Represented as Cilician, which covers a good number of cities. Tiny at 10 mm in diameter. Weight is 0.63 grams, which probably makes it an obol by the Rhodian standard. The portraits look to be of Heracles and Zeus.

Yes, unattributable Cilician. I have one too, one of my favorite obols
