Why order this Gold AD 668-685 Byzantine Empire Solidus of Heraclius
One of the most important parts of the hobby of coin collecting is connecting with the past, and a Gold Solidus of Heraclius gives you the chance to do just that. The solidus was first issued under Constantine. These were issued a few centuries later during the reign of Heraclius over the Byzantine Empire. Heraclius was known for reducing corruption and stopping Muslim advances in Asia Minor. Perhaps his greatest accomplishment, though, was the recovery of the True Cross, the Cross on which Jesus was crucified. The legitimacy of this artifact remains open to scholarly debate.
Heraclius, Heraclius Constantine and Heraclonas Design
