   Youroukova (1976) believes that the tetradrachm issues belong to Cotys II(VI) of the Astaei because he had ample availability of silver. The mint of these coins is not very clear. Based on the finds and the "barbarised" style, Youroukova localises the mint for the coins with the inscription ΚΟTΥOΣ / XAPAKΤΗΡ in the Odessos region. Stylistic characteristics of some coins with the inscription ΗΡΑΚΛΕΟΥΣ / ΣΩΤΗΡΟΣ / ΘΡΑΚΩΝ indicate greek origin (SHH 113) and could have been struck in Thasos. Others show clear celtic style engravings where dots have been used for image details (SHH 1392) indicating a mint in the north-eastern regions of Thrace.
