Commentary


Ce type 2c de la série D se divise en deux, selon que le poids est lourd ou léger. D. M. Metcalf fait pourtant remarquer qu'il existe des copie difficile à reconnaître et que certaine monnaies officielles ont pourtant un style très “pauvre”.
Ce denier probablement frappé à Domburg, est repris comme “Continental runic type”.

Historical background


ANGLO-SAXON

(Seventh - eighth centuries)

If minting these coins is to be at the beginning of the eighth century, in Britain, it is not unusual to find them in Gaul. They are often confused with the Merovingian silver coins (see COINS XIX, No. 503, sceattas c. 680-710, classified Merovingian denier of Laon). During the eighth century, the style of these pieces is more degenerate, they are often on ridges or filled. These small coins disappear from circulation in the second half of the eighth century.
