The classical and quantum motion of ions in a Kingdon trap (Orbitron) is studied for nearly circular orbits. The frequencies of small axial and radial oscillations are derived for both the logarithmic potential and the actual potential. A numerical comparison with the asymptotic approximation and with exact energy eigenvalues shows that the small oscillation method is adequate for most purposes.
