The Chalkis Hoard of Venetian Tornesello

The Chalkis Hoard of 4806 torneselli was found in Greece about 1980, cataloged by Alan M. Stahl, and published in "The Venetian Tornesello, a Medieval Colonial Coinage" (NNM No. 163, ANS, NY, 1985). Initially it was believed the hoard had been found near Arta, the capital of medieval Epirus. Subsequent investigation indicated the hoard was more likely found in the Chalkis area of Negroponte and was probably lost when Negroponte fell to the Turks in 1470. The dealer John Aiello donated 82 coins of 59 different types from the hoard to the ANS. One thousand of the Chalikis Hoard coins are in the Numismatic Collection of the Smithsonian Institution. The remaining coins were disbursed commercially, chiefly by the dealer Alex G. Malloy, who is now a Forum staff consultant. More than half of the coins in the hoard (2629 of 4806) were minted by Doge Antonio Venier, 1382 - 1400.
