General: The beginning of the legend is mostly obscured. From what we could make of it, it appears more likely to be IEPA than ΘΕΩΝ. Nacrasa was located around modern Bakir in North Lydia. It was originally a Seleucid stronghold. However no coinage has been identified from a times prior to it falling under Roman rule. Its coinage includes pseudo-autonomous issues (no emperor portrait) as well as Roman provincial / Greek Imperial issues.
