The researches carried out during the past fifteen years and connected with the coinage and the history of the Early Odrysian Kingdom enabled to draw a considerable number of essential new conclusions of which we shall note here those directly related to the present study. It has been established that all early Odrysian kings descended from Teres I and belonged to two kindred branches of the dinasty having always had under their control one of the two autonomous territories within the Odrysian Kingdom, the first in its eastern part and the second in its western part. The representatives of the senior branch of the dynasty, Sparadokos, Seutes I, Hebryzelmis, Kotys I and Kersebleptes had their main residences predominantly in the eastern territories, while those of the representatives of the junior branch, Sytalces/Saratokos (?), Metokos, Amatokos and Teres II were mainly in the western territories of the Early Odrysian Kingdom. This has been confirmed by the new examination of the informations obtained both from the sources and the basic areas (i.e. the regions of use) where different types of coins of the early Odrysian kinds of the two branches of the dynasty have been found, and the new interpretation of the ideas included in the images, inscriptions and additional symbols on such early Odrysian regal coins.
