The Frankish states in Greece likely began minting sometime after 1255. Rather similar to french tournois and Venetian grossi as in the example above, and rather unlike the Byzantine types of Constantinople and Thessalonica, possibly they represent likely a coinage for the Franks who were living in the new Western capital of Morea after the fall of Constantinople in 1204. Though in the past these coins as above have been attributed to Robert of Taranto due to site finds, Malloy admits that Metcalf proposes that these imitation grossi are possibly Serbian or another Balkan power. Perhaps more evidence will be uncovered,

states

"Jordanov has the emperor seated on a backless throne, but in the broken example pictured (Dolna Kabda coin 761) the throne is not obvious: perhaps it appears on other examples of the type (Jordanov reports four examples in the stray finds at Turnovo, although it is noticable that they are not mentioned by Dochev). Jordanov describes the obverse figure as a Military Saint (or perhaps Archangel), but again this is not obvious on the coin pictured.
This rare type is apparently known in both large (medium?) and (at Dolna Kabda) small module form."

As discussed in the Byzantine forumThese are the "neatly clipped" trachies.
During the reign of Manuel I the silver content of the trachy was dropped from c.6% to c.3%, but later types were sometimes issued with the higher silver content.
In Alexius III's time these high silver types were clipped down to half size, probably officially, presumably so as to match the lower silver content of the later issues.
Of course this would only have worked as long as the populace accepted the idea that the clipped coins were all high silver versions to start with. Once smarties started clipping ordinary coins these types would soon have have fallen out of favour and been withdrawn.

Ross G.


During the reign of Alexius III were reused coins of previous releases, clipping its border in a very regular mode and thus reducing to half their weight. Regularity of shearing and the fact that they were found to stock uniforms, suggesting that this clipping is a formal issuance of mint. Based on the stocks found in Constantinople , some of which consist only of clipped coins, it may safely be dated between 1195 and 1203.
Hendy and Grierson believe that this shearing was a consequence of the devaluation of trachy mixture during the reign of Isaac II and Alexius III. They reduced by half the already low silver content of this coin: shearing coins of previous emperors, still widely in circulation, made their trachy consistent with the intrinsic value of current emissions. Of course, this does not justify the clipping of coins already degraded of Isaac II and Alexius III. Therefore, reason for their declassification is not understood. I think that reason of Ross is right!
The structure of their dispersion in hoards indicates that, however, were made after the other emissions. Clipped trachys appear in small amounts along with regular trachy in hoards, represents a rarity. Were clipped trachys of Manuel I, Andronicus I, Isaac II and Alexius III, and perhaps of John II; those of Manuel are less scarce. In principle, we must believe that all trachys after Manuel I have been clipped, although many have not yet appeared.

This is the second of two main series struck as a imitative coinage usually derived from coins of Foca, Heraclius and Constans II. They do not employ a dating system and the officina and date they do have are considered meaning less at this time. Clive Foss from in "Arab -Byzantine coins" reports that a analyses by Pottier and colleagues concluded that they do correspond to a Byzantine standard and the most probable date of them was from 638-643. They are therefore considered some of the first identifiable Arab_Byzantine coins under the governorship of Mu'awiya.

Tyche was regarded as a patron deity of luck or good fortune for many cities in ancient greece. Pentanummia under Justin I have the seated figure of the Tyche of Antioch under an Arch. Gierson notes this to be one of the rare examples of a pagen type of diety in sixth century coinage.
