Description
Sasanian Empire, Khusro II, Occupation of Egypt, 618 - 628 A.D.

BZ93527. Bronze 12 nummi, DOC II-1 192; Hahn MIB 202a; Wroth BMC 276; Tolstoi 107-8; Ratto 1314-5; Morrisson BnF 10/Al/AE/30; SBCV 856; Sommer 11.93, VF, well centered, corrosion, Alexandria mint, 14.900 grams, 23.1 mm, die axis 180o, 618 - 628 A.D.; obverse bust of the Sassanid King Khusru II wearing a crown with pendilia and surmounted by a cross within a crescent, star left, crescent moon right; reverse large I B with modified cross potent on globe between, AΛEZ in exergue; from the Errett Bishop Collection; estimated value: $100.00

During his temporary domination of Egypt, 618 - 628 A.D., Khusru allowed the Alexandria mint to continue issuing the normal Byzantine coinage, but substituted his portrait for the Byzantine emperor`s. The sun and moon replaced the obverse legend, just as on contemporary Sasanian coinage. It may seem strange that a Persian king would wear a crown surmounted by a cross; however, his wife Sira was a Christian, he was a benefactor of the church of St. Sergius in Edessa, he honored the Virgin, and he sometimes wore a robe embroidered with a cross which he had received as a gift from the Emperor Maurice Tiberius. The Byzantine emperors resumed the imperial coinage of Alexandria after their recapture of Egypt in 628 A.D.

The corrosion on this coin looks like bronze disease but this is an old collection coin, we have had it for two years now, and the corrosion does not appear to be active.

How To Bid

1. Register for a Forum Ancient Coins account - if you haven't already.
2. Login to your account - if you haven't already.
3. Learn about the seller - Read feedback and ratings left by others to assure that the seller is trustworthy.  Forum bans sellers that have customer complaints, but it is still a good idea to check the seller's feedback.
4. Know the details - read the item description, seller terms, and shipping charges closely.  Sellers are required to accept PayPal (and you should only pay with PayPal), to guarantee delivery, and to guarantee authenticity without a time limit.  Read the sellers listing for other terms and return policies.
5. If you have questions - contact the seller FORVM AUCTIONS before you bid (click on the seller's username to send a message to the seller).
6. Place your bid!  Bid the maximum amount you want to pay for the item.  Your bid is an automated proxy bid and the amount will always be kept secret.  The program will automatically bid for you, the lowest possible amount (one increment above the next highest bid), and only up to your maximum.  If other bids are placed before the auction closes, the system will automatically bid for you again, but again only the minimum amount needed, and only up to your maximum.  If someone else bids more than your maximum, you will not be the high bidder; to win, you will need to place a higher bid before the auction closes.  If you are the high bidder at the end of the auction, you are the winner.  As the winner of the auction, you only pay the lowest possible winning bid, which may be less than your maximum bid.
