Founded in the seventh century BC by Aeolians on the site of ancient Troy, Ilion prospered and ultimately developed into a successful Hellenistic and Roman city. It possessed a famous temple of Athena (‘Ilias’) which was visited by King Xerxes of Persia and later by Alexander the Great. The Romans always had a high regard for Ilion because of the legend of Aeneas and the tradition that Rome's founders were of Trojan origin. His son Ascanius became king of Alba Longa, from which the first kings of Rome claimed descent. Ascanius was also known as Iulus, and the Julian gens claimed primacy of place as his direct heirs.

Ganymede was the son of Tros, founder of Troy. A youth of great beauty, he was abducted by Zeus while the young man was tending his flocks on Mt. Ida. Carried to Olympus either by an eagle, or Zeus himself in aquiline form, Ganymede served as the god’s cupbearer in place of Hebe, as well as his eromenos. This arrangement angered Hera to such a degree that she would abandon the Trojans in their war against the Greeks. To recompense Tros for the loss of his son, Zeus provided him with a pair of horses so swift, they could cross over water, and which were the ancestors of the horses for which the Trojans were renowned.

This is a new theme for the coins and not a tactful one. Laomedon had cheated Poseidon of his promised hire for building the walls of Troy and Poseidon sent a sea-monster to ravage the land. In response to an oracle Laomedon sought to avert disaster by chaining his daughter Hesione on the sea shore to be the monster's victim. Heracles, arriving in the Troad in connection with the Argonautic expedition or in pursuit of the girdle of the queen of the Amazons, killed the monster and rescued the maiden. Laomedon promised him, as a reward, the horses which Zeus had given him, but when he went back on his promise, Heracles later assaulted and captured the city. The Trojan part in this affair is far from edifying and it is not surprising that the story was dropped from the repertory of the die-sinkers (A.R. Bellinger, Troy, The Coins. Supplementary Monograph 2, University of Cincinnati, 1961, p.64).

Fine, brown surfaces. Extremely rare, possibly only the second example known and the only one not in a public collection.

The son of the Greek king Telamon of Salamis and his Trojan wife Hesione, Teucer was the half-brother of the Greek hero Ajax the Greater, as well as the nephew of King Priam of Troy and cousin of Hector. Siding with the Greeks and hiding behind the giant shield of his half-brother, Teucer used his skills as an archer to defend the Greeks against the Trojans. Enraged by Teucer's success during one of these fights, Hector picked up a huge rock and flung it at Teucer, injuring him so badly that he was forced to withdraw for some time while he recuperated from the concussion.

Apparently unpublished. The only other example of the type I could find is from a Gorny & Mosch auction. That example weight 2.87g and is attributed as a hemidrachm. One could argue that it is a tetrobol based on the standards used at Ilion at the time. This would then be a diobol.
