    Good save, WB2. This thread was headed to General Discussion but I’ll send it to Ancient Coins, now.

    Savant (ain't seen him in quite a spell) sent me this (bless him) a time ago. Tried to win me over to the 'dark side', but I resist to this day. Still, let it not be said that 'green' does not appreciate ancients.......:)

    Nice Diocletian, but that coin was already over 230 years old by 536 AD when they had that year of never ending winter.

    Hell, I'm almost that (230). Just got the notion the thread was turning ancient, and my coin stock is quite limited....... devil.gif

    I always wondered what those things were hanging from Justinian's ears and now I know. Given that the Byzantines did things so ornately I did not not recognize them for what they actually are. Hearing about all that cold weather finally cleared it up, Earmuffs!
