This poor fellow only ruled for two months. He was injured in Battle and not expected to live long. He did not. Stauracius never had a chance to issue coins on his own, here is a more common one of him and the previous Emperor Nicephorus. 


Nicephorus I, with Stauracius, 802-811. Follis (Bronze, 23 mm, 5.83 g, 5 h), Constantinopolis. Facing busts of Nicephorus I, with short beard, wearing chlamys, on the left and Stauracius, beardless, wearing chlamys on the right, both wearing crown surmounted by cross; between their heads, cross. Rev. Large M between X/X/X and N/N/N; above, cross; below, A. DOC 5. SB 1607. Very fine.


Anybody else have a short turn ruler in there collection? Please share.
