Description

The gold coin comes from the kit of one of the five tombs belonging to high-ranking Lombard figures found near the town of Trezzo sull'Adda (Milan) between 1976 and 1978. On the right it is decorated with the bust of the emperor Phocas bearing on his head the diadem with a cross while with his right hand he holds a rod which is also crusader. On the reverse, the symbol of victory appears with a rod and globe surmounted by a cross. The Solid was placed in the burial as an offering for the afterlife and signals the economic power held by the deceased in life.
