Hi All,

I just discovered a book online for free (open access) or as a hard copy you can buy. It’s “Roman Provincial Coinage of Bithynia and Pontus during the Reign of Trajan (98-117 AD)” by Barbara Zając. See https://www.archaeopress.com/Archaeopress/Products/9781803274652   . Enjoy.

Thanks for sharing, @Broucheion, although this is well past my ordinary time period of interest, the opening pages are nicely written and interesting for the general history and observations about the region.  Here's a Bithynian coin from the days of Mithidates VI Eupator...

Bithynia, Dia, AE (Circa 95-90 or 80-70 BC), struck under Mithradates VI Eupator, 8.5g and 21mm
Obv: Laureate head of Zeus right.
Rev: ΔΙΑΣ., Eagle, with head right and wings spread, standing left on thunderbolt; monogram to left and right.
