A coinage for late Byzantine Morea under Manuel II Palaiologos (1391-1425) / Julian R. Baker

Source:

Revue Numismatique 162 (2006) p. 395-416, pl. 41-42

Abstract:

This study presents a previously unattributed tornesello coinage of the Late Byzantine Morea. It was studied by the author principally amongst the excavation finds from Sparta, and only two additional specimens are known to him from Thebes and the island of Euboia respectively. The coinage was issued in the name of emperor Manuel II Palaiologos (1391-1425). It was probably produced in the mid- 1390s, or perhaps in 1408/1415-16. The mint was probably located in Monemvasia, though it might have been in Mystras. The identification of this coinage might also provide the key to two late 14th/early 15th century references to the monetary affairs of Byzantine Morea which have so far remained rather ill understood. The coinage is testimony to the relative longevity of the city of Sparta and the fiscal integration of Byzantine Constantinople and the Péloponnèse, though it must be ultimately judged a failure.

A hoard of byzantine gold coins from Samos / Mando Oeconomides and Phane Drossoyianni

Source:

Revue Numismatique 6e sér. 31 (1989) p. 145-182

Abstract:

A hoard comprising 300 gold Byzantine coins and two pairs of gold earrings was found on the Greek island of Samos. The series begins with coins of Maurice and ends with two coins of Heraclius bearing the controversial marks IX and III. It is connected with the threat to the Aegean area in the early 7th century. On the basis of other finds in the area, eastern sources (especially Thomas of Emesa) and circumstantial evidence from Moyses Dasxurançi, the present article tends to adopt the view of Clive Foss about the sweeping character of the Persian invasions and their arrival as far west as the Aegean littoral. The date 623 A.D. is considered as the likeliest for the burial of the Samos hoard. Further there are pointed out certain hints in the eastern sources in favour of the hypothesis that some kind of a forerunner of the themes might have already started to take shape in the time of Heraclius (compare I. Shahid, Heraclius and the Theme System, Byzantion, LVII, 1987).

Abstract:

Much has been made of the presence or absence of seventh- and eighth-century coinson several sites in Greece, primarily in Athens and Corinth. Kenneth Setton and Peter Charanis have paved the way for a cultural-historical interpretation of coin finds, but athorough comparison of both single and hoard finds from Greece with others from theBalkans suggests a very different interpretation. Instead of signalising decline, low-denomination coins, especially from Athens, may point to local markets of low-valuecommodities, such as food, as well as to the permanent presence of the fleet.

Abstract:

A survey of the gold and copper coinages minted at Thessalonica between c. 408 and c. 629 concentrates attention on the gold because that represents the major part of the output by value. Thessalonica minted gold because the praefectus praetorio per Illyricum enjoyed comitatensian powers. The volume of gold coinage minted varied widely from time to time. There were exceptionally large issues, apparently, in the years 443-50, possibly to meet the needs of an extensive building programme in Thessalonica itself. Hoards of gold from Illyricum contain in general a very low proportion of coins minted in Thessalonica, mainly because the output of the Constantinople mint was relatively so much greater. This nevertheless raises questions about the connexion between monetary circulation in the prefecture and taxation. The copper coinage (which is dated, and therefore allows precise connexions between historical events and the work of the mint to be considered) illustrates the effects of the Slavonic settlement of Illyricum. The loss of Byzantine control during the seventh century is reflected in the absence of any hoards from the prefecture later than the reign of Heraclius, except at Athens.

The Ayies Paraskies/1962 hoard / Vasso Penna, Manolis Borboudakis

Source:

Revue Numismatique 154 (1999) p. 195-210

Abstract:

The hoard under discussion was found at Ayies Paraskies near Herakleion in 1962 and is now exhibited in the Historical Museum of Herakleion. It consists of ninty-eight histamena, ten are of Nicephorus II and the rest of Basil II and Constantine VIII. It is noteworthy the existence in the hoard of new varieties. Among the coins of Basil IPs and Constantine VIII's joint reign an unpublished type has been identified. It might have been issued during the first year of the young emperor's sole reign. The Cretan hoard it seems to represent the ready cash of a person or body involved in direct and continuous monetary dealings. The existence of rare classes confirms the regularity of its increase.The lack of issues from the intervening reign of John I Tzimisces raises questions concerning the circulation of gold coinage in the period. The hoard was concealed at a time when DOC Class III was still in production. Its deposition should be dated shortly before 1014, since Class IV, with the crown suspended over Basil's head, might have been introduced after the resounding Byzantine victory over the Bulgarians in that year. It is difficult to determine the circumstances in which the Cretan hoard was concealed. It presumably reflects the habits of a new social class in Crete, whose members, very possibly immigrants to the land newly acquired by the Arabs, endeavoured to acclimatize and to consolidate their economic status. Ayies Paraskies, close to the island's new capital in a strategic location on the road network in the province of Pediada, which was still known as Kastro in the period of Venetian, perhaps attracted the interest of the island's new Byzantine inhabitants after the defeat of the Arabs. The discovery of the hoard here supports such a hypothesis, which may well be corroborated in the future by other archaeological finds.

Le témoignage des trouvailles de Grèce, méconnu dans DOC 4, apporte en effet une perspective différente sur des sujets comme la circulation et la nature des tétartèra et la chronologie des divers groupes d'imitations du tournant du XIIe siècle.
