    Finally, I've got this tiny little fellow--9 mm, ~0.85g.--that I haven't had much luck with so far (although it's been only 3 days). I've trying searching for different combinations of Greek AE, Athena, crescent, 9mm and IM (the reverse is IM within a crescent or semi-circle, although it looks like ΠM in the photo) on acsearch but haven't found anything yet. Any leads or suggestions?

    Troas. Sigeion. It's a sigma :).

    Thank you, TIF. I checked Sigeion in ACSearch and didn't find a match, but then I checked Wildwinds and found this:
    Troas, Sigeion, AE9, ca. 350 BC. 0.88 g.

    Helmeted bust of Athena right
    SI-GE, crescent.

    Looks like my coin (only much nicer!).
