New Palaeologan type from Anaia
« on: October 06, 2021, 11:04:31 pm »
The coins below are two of a number of similar examples from the excavations at Anaia in western Anatolia.

They are described as “overstrikes” (meaning I presume mules*), with an obverse of Michael VIII (cf. Sear 2261) and a reverse of Andronicus II (Dochev 2017, p. 62, no. 143).

None of this makes much sense to me so has anybody got any ideas as to what these types are?

In particular what exactly is Dochev 2017, p. 62, no. 143?

* Actually it seems the authors do mean overstrikes, as is possibly evident at the bottom of the reverse/top of the obverse of coin 27 - very confusing.

Actually, it seems there are two questions here - we seem to have a new type, with B. Christ on the obverse and the emperor half-length on the reverse (similar to but clearly different from Sear 2134 of John III), together with some minor over/understrikes thrown in to confuse the issue.
