ARMENIA.Hetoum I and Zabel AD 1226-1270.AR.Tram. ( 2.83g, 21mm, 9h)
Armenian legend "Hetou king of the Armenians", lion walking right with cross on back, left paw raised.
Reverse.Armenia legend "by the will of God", in the Byzantine style standing figures of Hetoum right and Zabel left holding between them long cross.
Ref:AC 335.
very fine.

Note that Zabel, daughter of Levon the Great, died C.1252 so these issues should be cat.1226-1252 but the issue might be an immobolized type struck to the end of the reign.

Bedoukian and Nercessian both have the obverse as the two standing figures.I beg to differ the obverse is the lion side with the legend continuing on the reverse to read " Hetoum king of the Armenians by the will of God".This is the formula as found on all the silver coinage of Levon I.
