Commentary


Si la teneur en or des monnaies de ELA est faible, le poids de notre triens est exactement dans la moyenne ; les deux exemplaires de la BN pèsent 1,27 et 1,29 grammes.
Notre monnaie appartient au monétaire ELA. C’est le premier monétaire dont le nom est de consonnance anglo-saxone. Il est aussi le premier qui est représenté dans les collections par plus de 5 exemplaires ; J. Lafaurie en a recensé 16 exemplaires en 1996. Les monnaies signées ELA ont un titre d’or fin en nette chute, variant entre 60 et 46% mais qui sera relevée par ses successeurs aux environs de 55-60%.
