Kavaros was the last Gallic king of Thrace, killed during a Thracian uprising against Gallic rule circa 218 BC. His capital is identified as Kabyle, whose badge was Artemis Phosphoros. Gerassimov recorded six tetradrachms of Kavaros, four of which were held in museum collections, struck from four different reverse dies and one obverse die. Others have subsequently come to light, but the issue remains of great rarity and numismatic interest.” (source: Roma Numismatic Auction Catalog)
