My first authentic Byzantine coin, 1028-1034 A.D.

Thanks to Mr Ilya Zlobin of http://www.TrustedCoins.com I am now the happy owner of an authentic, almost a thousand years old, coin from the Byzantine Empire, struck during the reign of Romanus III, 1028-1034 A.D. At the front there is Jesus Christ and on the back side there is a cross and the text: Jesus Christ – King of Kings. (IS XS BASILE BASILE). I have already ordered a second coin with my favorite Christogram: IC XC NI  KA.

Jesus Christ Class B i41910 a

And it was not at all expensive…
