MÍn on Ancient Coins

Luna, the Greek moon-goddess, was female, which seems natural because the female menstrual cycle follows the lunar month. But MÍn was a male moon-god, probably originally of the indigenous non-Greek Karian people. By Roman times MÍn was worshiped across Anatolia and in Attica. He was associated with fertility, healing, and punishment. MÍn is usually depicted with a crescent moon behind his shoulders, wearing a Phrygian cap, and holding a lance or sword in one hand and a pine-cone or patera in the other. His other attributes include the bucranium and chicken. A temple of MÍn has been excavated at Antioch, Pisidia.

Nysa does not seem to have minted too many coins at all in the Severan era. Most of the catalog entries are either Antonine or later than Severan. We could mention a small type of Geta and a Julia Maesa in Copenhagen. The BM and Weber coll. have a medallion with just MÍn on reverse, same issue as our type.
