Notes (from Fusconi 2016): Initially attributed to Leo VIII (963-965), this coin was assigned by Grierson to Leo III on the basis of the presence of one specimen in the find at Delgany, Ireland, datable to about 830 (Evans 1882, p. 70 and pp. 78-79; Grierson 1952, pp. 826-828) and as many as three specimens in the find at Biebrich, Germany, datable to 790-800 (Volckers 1965, XLII, nos. 45-47).

Other notes: extremely rare coin, proposed with detailed numismatic expertise by Umberto Moruzzi (Rome).
