Why add an ancient Copper Cross from the Byzantine Empire to your collection?

The division of the Roman Empire into Eastern and Western regions occurred around AD 285. While the Western Empire fell in the 5th century, the Eastern Empire, more commonly known as the Byzantine Empire, continued to flourish for an additional thousand years. Constantine I, also known as Constantine the Great, ruler from AD 306-337, was the first Emperor to convert to Christianity. He was co-author of the Edict of Milan in 313, which declared religious tolerance for Christianity in the Roman Empire. A decade later, he declared Christianity the official religion of the Empire.

Symbolism of the Byzantine Cross

The Byzantine Cross is a symbol of Christian faith and spirituality as it developed within the Empire. The Latin style cross resembles the Chi Rho which began to appear in imagery and on coinage associated with Constantine I. The Chi Rho is one of the earliest forms of a christogram, created from the letters "X" and "P," the first two letters of the Greek word Christos (to Christ).

Artifacts representing the Byzantine Empire's conversion from Paganism to Christianity are typically found in the Balkans, Near East and the Holy Land. Each relic included in ModernCoinMart's collection of ancient Byzantine Copper Crosses, produced sometime during the 7th-12th centuries AD, is unique! Styles vary, measuring 2"-4" in length; some featuring shaped arms, inscriptions and/or stylized religious-themed ornamentation.

Don't miss this opportunity to add a unique Copper Cross representing Christianity in the Byzantine Empire to your collection!

Photo Policy: MCM attempts to display product images shown on the site as accurately as possible. We take all of our photos in house and due to reflections on the mirrored or proof surfaces of a coin there may appear to be 'black' when there is not. If a coin has a color on it at all it will be described as 'colorized' in the description or title. Due to the large inventory we sell, we use stock photos. Serial numbers will vary from the image shown unless specifically stated in the product listing that the item pictured is the item you will receive.

The value of the coin is not determined by its precious metal content.

Tiny. Doesn’t even look like
Tiny. Doesn’t even look like a cross. Plan to return it for replacement. Certainly not one of the crosses shown in advertisements .
