Medieval European Art and Artifacts
First Bulgarian Empire, Peter I, 927 - 969 A.D., Lead Bulla Seal

|Bulgaria|, |First| |Bulgarian| |Empire,| |Peter| |I,| |927| |-| |969| |A.D.,| |Lead| |Bulla| |Seal|, |bulla| |(tag| |seal)|
This seal was reportedly found together with a hoard of Romanus I, Constantine II and Romanus II solidi, some of which are now available for sale in our Byzantine Gold section. The seal may have once tied a leather bag containing the coins; perhaps a Bulgarian imperial payment.

Peter was the son of Simeon the Great 893 - 927, architect of the Golden Age for the Bulgarian Empire. In 927 the Bulgarians and the Byzantines signed apeace treaty which recognized Peter's Imperial title, the borders and the Bulgarian Patriarchate. In addition, Peter married Maria Lecapene, renamed Eirene (Peace) for the event.

An inferior example (with a finder's cut defacing Peter) was estimated $1000 and sold for $650 plus fees in Triton XI, 2008.

Medieval Spain, Iron Arrowhead, 1212 A.D.

|Metal| |Arrowheads|, |Medieval| |Spain,| |Iron| |Arrowhead,| |1212| |A.D.|,
From the collection of Alex G. Malloy, former dealer in antiquities for 40 years.

Found at site of the Battle of Navas de Tolosa in Spain, which took place on 16 July 1212, an important turning point in the Reconquista and the medieval history of Spain. The forces of King Alfonso VIII of Castile were joined by the armies of his Christian rivals, Sancho VII of Navarre, Pedro II of Aragon and Afonso II of Portugal in battle against the Berber Muslim Almohad rulers of the southern half of the Iberian Peninsula. The sultan Caliph al-Nasir led the Almohad army, made up of people from the whole Almohad empire. Most of the men in the Almohad army came from the African side of the empire, which included Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and even as far away as Mauritania and Senegal and much of the Iberian peninsula's southern half. The battle was bloody and decisive. Alfonso managed to cross the mountain range that defended the Almohad camp, sneaking through the Despeaperros Pass, so that the Christian coalition caught by surprise and smashed the Moorish army that left some 100,000 casualties at the battleground. The Caliph Muhammad al-Nasir himself died soon after in Marrakech, where he had fled after the defeat.
