But on with the motley...

I have just noticed something very odd. One almost universal feature of Byzantine coins through the centuries is that the reverse is normally inverted, at least on official coins.

Now according to CLBC the reverse of the Alexius I tetarteron SBCV 1931 is inverted as usual, and their drawing shows this, but if you bring up this type on acsearch it seems that in almost all cases the reverse is upright.

Does this mean this type is all (or mostly) imitative?

Did not notice this aspect before. I have just one 1931, which is inverted. Simon will now look through his box of 1931s...

I have further modified Table II to better reflect the weight reductions of the tets and half-tets over Manuel I's reign (basically following CLBC).
