According to Ptolemaic bronze expert Daniel Wolf, `These coins are attributed by Svoronos to Ake-Ptolemaïs (Acre), but modern finds indicate they are most likely from the area near (modern) Bodrum in Turkey.` Cathy Lorber has since refined the attribution of these tripod types to Telmessus in Lydia, modern Fethiye. There have been more finds there than at Bodrum.
