Nerosmyfavorite68 Posted January 8 · Member Share Posted January 8 I've always wondered, would AE's of places like Carthage, Sicily, Ravenna, and Rome be good in Constantinople? Thessalonica and Antioch often turn up in faraway eastern Byzantine locations. What about the other way around? It's probably unlikely that many from Rome or Ravenna would have traveled east, for other than papal delegations, I can't think of many exports from an isolated enclave. Presumably AV of good weight and metal would be accepted. The coins of Sicily were generally well-made and Constans II temporarily parked the capital there, so one would think there would be more activity. Carthage and Sicily were grain producers in Roman times, so I'd assume they were in Byzantine times, after the loss of Egypt. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
