@shanxi . That's interesting, I'm going to make a search about the Senate on the obverse.
Γ ΝΕ-ΩΚΟΠΩΝ honoring the third Neocorate temple of this city. My coin below has a different type and split of the legend
Γ - Ν-ΕΩΚΟP--Ω--Ν placing the last two letters separately in the inner left field. In both cases the genitive plural city name is at the reverse left CMVRNAIΩN"of the Smyrnians". It seems that legend placement was pretty much a matter of whatever was needed to make it fit.
For those not familiar with Neocorate:
Separate names with a comma.
