Coins from this series, usually bearing the Punic legend "mhnt" (camp), "m'mhnt" (people of the camp), "s'm'mhnt", "m'm", or other similar variations were likely minted in Western Sicily. Several theories debate the exact location of the mint, with the most likely candidates being Entella and Lilybaion. Another theory suggests that this was a mobile military mint, supportting the Punic war efforts, stationed regularly at Lilybaion.
