    NICEFORO & STAURACIO Gold Coin. 802-811 AD

    This is my second gold coin. The first one was in pieces
    After finding this simple ring, for sure of the same period, 8-9 cent AD, i took a very narrow path to get out of the difficult terrain.

    Heading west, there was a good spot to enjoy dhe great view. It was a 4 mq plain area before going down the hill. The signal was loud and clear. Bronze medallion, 8th-12-th AD.

    Next, I was heading down the hill and I already spotted a small area without vegetation. It looked interesting. On my way, a few coins came out.

    Heading to that small clean area I had a very good feeling. The first signal was my own spade but the second one was a very short loud sound. It was hot and I was not using the headphones. The coin was right on the surface. I don't remember what happend next ��( I will check the clip).

    by the way.

    Nikephoros seized the throne of the Byzantine Empire from Empress Irene in 802, and elevated Staurakios to co-emperor in December 803. After Nikephoros fell in the Battle of Pliska on 26 July 811, Staurakios was declared emperor, despite his severe injuries from the battle. His reign was short due to the political uncertainties surrounding his wounds, which included the severing of his spine; he was usurped by his brother-in-law, Michael I Rangabe, on 2 October 811. After being removed from power, he was sent to live in a monastery, where he stayed until he died of gangrene or poisoning.

    I added a short clip(the best part) just for fun.



    It looks like like a quick adventure but it was a 8 hours of swinging ��.
    Thank you for reading.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
