CAROLINGIANS Louis le Pieux (Louis the Pious) 814-840 AD Denier -- #ME54541

+PISTIANA RELIGIO

M-G 472; MEC I 803-804; Dolley-Morrison 68

Good VF. Attractive old toning, with relatively good metal quality. The metal may be partly crystallized, but lacks the telltale dull sound one would expect. This die pairing may one day be attributed to its mint, owing to the unusual style. Deypeyrot was able to accomplish this with comparison to finds and museum specimens, by focusing on unique paculiarities of style.

Poorly rendered Cufic legends in concentric circles; pair of pellets below central inscription.

Poorly rendered Cufic legends in concentric circles.

Metcalfe LE 136 var. (pellets on reverse); CCS 5c var. (same)

EF. Choice strike for the type. An atypically light flan crack is noted. A 'Bezant' (Bisant or Besant), perhaps derived from 'Byzance' is a medieval merchant's name for any Arabic Dinar of the weight of a Byzantine solidus. The Crusader Bezants were probably named after the 'Saracenic Bezant', another current term for the coin. The two additional pellets below the central inscription make this coin an interesting variant that is seldom offered.
