The centaur represented on the reverse of this coin must be Chiron, a figure highly respected as an oracle, an astrologer, and a teacher of a number of Greek heroes; most notably, he was the athletic instructor of the hero Achilles. The appearance of Chiron on this coin may be an allegorical representation for the initiation of a local athletic event. A good possibility, according to MacDonald, is the institution of the Gordianea Attalea, games established by Gordian III and commemorated on contemporary issues from the city.
