224| |-| |651| |A.D.|
With the overthrow of the Parthians in 224, Ardashir I founded the Sasanian Empire which was for over four centuries, alongside the Roman-Byzantine Empire, one of the main powers in Western and Central Asia. At its greatest extent, the Sassanid Empire encompassed all of today's Iran, Iraq, the Levant (Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan, Israel), the Caucasus (Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Dagestan), Egypt, parts of Turkey, much of Central Asia (Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan), the Persian Gulf countries, Yemen, Oman and Pakistan. It was overthrown by the Rashidun Caliphate in 651. Much of what later became known as Islamic culture in architecture, poetry, etc. was conveyed to the Muslim world by the Sassanids.

Lot of 20 Venetian Silver Grossi, 1193 - 1471, F - VF, Clipped

|Medieval| |&| |Modern| |Bulk| |Lots|, |Lot| |of| |20| |Venetian| |Silver| |Grossi,| |1193| |-| |1471,| |F| |-| |VF,| |Clipped||Lot|
When the Venetian grosso (plural Grossi) was first introduced under doge Enrico Dandolo in 1193, it weighed 2.18 grams of 98.5% silver, and was valued at 26 dinarii. Its name is from the same root as groschen and the English groat, all derived from the denaro grosso. Its value was allowed to float relative to other Venetian coins until it was pegged to 4 soldini in 1332. In 1332, 1 grosso was the equivalent of 4 soldini, or 48 dinarii. From 1340 to 1370, the increased price of silver forced most doges to stop issuing grossi, and the others to issue only a few. When Doge Andrea Contarini resumed production of grossi their weight began to fall and continued falling until Cristoforo Moro struck the last Venetian grossi with a weight of 0.45 grams.
