Something new to Add to the collection, a nice hyperpyron.

If you got some late byzantine show, share them.

Andronicus II Palaeologus, with Michael IX, 1282-1328. Hyperpyron (Gold, 23 mm, 4.12 g, 6 h), Constantinopolis, 1294-1320. Bust of Virgin Mary, orans, within city walls furnished with six groups of towers; to her left and right, MP - Θ. Rev. Christ blessing Andronicus II and Michael IX, kneeling to left and right, respectively; in fields, IC - XC above C - K; to left and right, the names of the emperors. SB 2396. Flan crack, otherwise, very fine.

This is one of the more interesting specimens, particularly because of the sigla between Christ and each of the emperors.  The imperial costume is also more pronounced on this specimen than many others.

Thank You Obryzum, I was attracted to this example because or the details on the reverse. The Obverse was also recognizable, most I have seen are poorly struck. To be honest I do not know much about the intricacies of this coin type.I did know about the 6 towers behind the virgin vs. 4.
