For those interested in the 12th century trachea and tetartera of Byzantium I attach some tables summarising the various issues of these types.

Hmm - the tables didn't display as I would have liked, so I have pulled them for the moment.

Actually, the descriptions in Forum use "maximum diameter" NOT "maximum width", which is what I typed above.

Just to see how a professional does it, I clicked on three random coins for sale at Forum. In the description of each coin, the width recorded is the "maximum width". That works for me.

I really came to think of this east-west condition, even because I already saw some images having a ruler measuring in this position. But I am always in doubt which one would be correct. I believe that a diameter said to be correct serves as a parameter against counterfeiting

Thanks for your help

I hope that other friends can also give their opinions...

I assume that if a single measurement is given, it is the "East-West" diameter.   But I have seen some descriptions where they list the "North-South" and "East-West" measurements, and if the coin is distinctly out of round, they will also list a "Maximum" diameter.

Joe deals with this all the time, so let's get his input.......

Dear friends, I would like to know if anyone at the Forum could help me with a question.

How to determine the diameter of old irregularly shaped coins such as many Roman pieces, where most of them are oval shaped.

Because in some auction and sale sites they inform the diameter as if it were regular as in modern currencies If someone could help me, in this doubt.

Thanks!

I attached a coin as an example.

All dealers collect fakes, but not intentionally.  I would rather not have them.

Fake coin report for the bronze, please. Volunteer?

3817 is an AE 18 with the same obverse legend as yours: AV K M AVP ANTΩNINOC
I was actually looking at 3971 which has the same obverse legend also and is closer in size but the reverse legend is probably different by the looks of it.
I can't read it myself. Eyes no longer cooperate. Someone will point you in the right direction on here.

Thanks for your research!

But I'm quite sure that the legend is not the same.

Varbanov 3817 (a coin from Jochen's collection: 2.95g vs 6.0g, different reverse legend):

Other coins from Nicopolis with Artemis seem to be other denominations (10.0g and different reverse legend):

Do you have another reference?
