    • Denomination: Solidus
  • Thumbnail image of NCL-F02EB5

Record ID: NCL-F02EB5
Object type: COIN
Broad period: BYZANTINE
County: Northumberland
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A gold solidus of Arichis II, dux of Benevento (Italy), probably Class I coinage of 758-765. See Grierson and Blackburn 1986 (Medieval European Coinage 1: The Early Middle Ages), 575, plate 50 (no 1096). The coin bears two cut marks at 1 and 5 o'clock respectively, both of which cut through the coin in a straight line, angled toward a point just right of centre. The cuts do not meet, however, so that the coin remained intact. These cut marks may represent an aborted attempt of 'hacking' the coin for gold - a practice common in the Early Medieval period.
