Sear_2012-3_Two_Stars.jpg
Sear 2012/33 viewsAlexius III Angelus-Comnenus (1195 – 1203 CE) Billon aspron trachy, weight 3.09g, diameter 28mm. Quite an unusual specimen, with two stars placed in the gap between the reverse figures, where one expects to find only drapery. I’ve not seen this design variation before.

Sear 18366 viewsAnonymous Class D Follis, weight 11.30g, diameter 29mm. Mint of Constantinople.

Somewhat smaller than usual for the type and with an angled edge in parts, presumably filed down so that the coin could be set in a pendant or similar type of jewellery.
