I had read these were found with tetartera finds from the 12th century. So I assumed they were resized to pass as current currency.

From my collection.

Size 20mm

Identification Help / Pertinax?
« Last post by Tom G3 on Today at 08:35:26 am »
Well I looked for every bearded emperor I could find. The closest I could get was maybe Pertinax. But I can't find this one on wildwinds or any other site. The person on the back appears to be holding victory and sitting on a curiass. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate the help! Thanks Tom

Medieval, Islamic and Crusader Coins / Legend: Armenian Tram Hetoum I
« Last post by Jan P on Today at 04:01:39 am »
Hello Dear Members,

Underneath one can see my Cilician Armenian Tram of Hetoum I.
I was seeking for the transcription and translation of the legends.
For the lion-side it is okay. It should be: HETOWM TAGAWOR HAYOTS for "Hetoum king of the Armenians".

The royal couple-side however is giving me more trouble. Till now I came to: KAROGHUT'BN ATS'W, what should stand for something as "by Gods' grace", but I think this needs a lot of correction. And I like the translation as literally as possible.

Yes, normally this is my work. I have a collection of coins in all kinds of strange scripts of which I look up transcription and translation.
But today I am a bit lazy and I have a lot of gardening to do and I saw here that some members can handle this in the blink of an eye, so I thought ...
