The silver coinage of Saratokos, trihemiobols with an average weight of 0.95 g and diobols of 1.20 g, were struck, as was the case of the coinage of Thasos, Maronea, Ainos, Abdera, Byzantium etc., according to the Chian standard. The closeness to the eastern coin standards facilitated trade connections between the Greek colonies situated along the Thracian coast-line and the Great Eastern Monarchy. The name of Saratokos is also connected with one rare bronze coin of a very small denomination. The type, a bearded Satyr and a bunch of grapes, allows to attribute it to the coinage of Saratokos, as an inscription is lacking. [Youroukova 1976, Peter 1997]
