Egypt: Antiquities Ministry – Byzantine Coins Found
27 November 2012
Ali said the discovery was made by a mission from the University of Milan.
He said the discovery is significant because it gives a clear view of the shape of coins during the Byzantine era, adding that both pieces reflected the accuracy and skillfulness of their maker. The two items weigh 4.3 and 4.27 grams.
One side of the first coin bears the image of Emperor Phocas (AD 602-610), hoisting a cross with his right hand that shows his name, while the other side shows the king holding a stick in his right hand and a cross in his left.
