Ce type de revers semble très rare ; la seule monnaie d’Oxford qui y corresponde (le n° 237) est associé à un avers différent avec une croisette à la place des petits traits parallèles devant la bouche.
Même revers que le bmv_229381 mais sans le cordon perlé à l’avers !.

Historical background


(7th - 8th centuries)

If the minting of these coins is to be located at the beginning of the 8th century, in Great Britain, it is not exceptional to find them in Gaul. They are often confused with Merovingian silver coins (cf. MONNAIES XIX, n° 503, sceattas c. 680-710, classified in Merovingian denier of Laon). During the 8th century, the style of these pieces is more and more degenerated, they are often in ridge or filled. These coins disappeared from circulation in the second half of the 8th century.
