    Under "Thessalonica":
    AES means bronze.
    Next are 4 possible obverse inscriptions, one for each Augustus/Caesar
    Next are 4 sets of different mint/field mark possibilities for that particular reverse inscription/description and the four coins each with those specific mint marks.

    Your coin has dot TS dot with a Gamma in the right field, so you need to look in the 4th group.
