TheTrachyEnjoyer Posted August 13, 2022 · Member Share Posted August 13, 2022 Medieval coinage features many unusual Saints and other elements of Christian iconography! Jesus, Mary, St Demetrius, St Theodore, St George, Archangel Michael and others are common. What about the rarely seen Saints or other symbols/elements? Saint Nicholas (Bulgarian empire trachy) Seraph (Michael VIII trachy) Winged Patriarchal Cross (Andronikos II Tornese) Castle with a crescent moon and stars (Politkon Tornese) Fluer de Lis / Patriarchal Cross with decorations (Anonymous John Komnenodoukas trachy) I would consider these all rather uncommon (and fun) designs! What strange saints or iconography do you have in your collection? 17 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
