    @The Trachy Enjoyer, you've already made an incisive, unknown (to yours truly), and duly valued distinction between Latin and Bulgarian knock-offs. Many thanks.

    @BenSi, when you used the word "fun," you kind of nailed it, especially for people who have only less of an idea what they're looking at than you do. Except that, for any sort of post-Latin, 13th-century trachy, the obverse motif, with the (What? haloed saint's head???) above, and the sort of Latin /patriarchal cross below, is already very evocative. Especially in reference to ongoing cultural influence from the Franks. ...Largely in spite of themselves. Almost reminiscent of how Hollywood has invaded (for one instance) Western Europe.
