    I have checked several books but cannot find a match, I was thinking Roger II when I bought it but no match.

    The seller listed it as Manuel Comnenus its 17mm and 4.03gm.I No listed coin for Manuel. It is too complex and attractive to be imitative , at least the reverse.

    Anybody seen this type before?

    Why isn't this a follaro or multiple of Ruggero II as Count of Sicily and Duke of Apulia and Calabria, like this or similar?

    Perhaps you missed it because it's a pre-coronation issue of Roger as mere count?
