    Description

    BYZANTINE EMPIRE. Theodosius III (AD 715-717). AV tremissis (1.13 gm). Rome or Ravenna(?) mint. Crowned bust of Theodosius facing, holding globus cruciger / Cross Potent. Sear --. DOC 13 var. (no star in rev. field). Extremely rare, possibly unique. In NGC holder graded AU 3/5 - 4/5.

    More Information:

    The mint attribution of this piece must remain uncertain, although the unusual style of the obverse portrait, particularly the depiction of the loros and the serifs on the letters, suggest a Western mint. DOC records one tremissis of similar style attributed to Rome, although Ravenna is also possible.
