Armenian legend "Hetoum king of the Armenians", lion walking right with cross on back, left paw raised.
Reverse.Armenian legend"by the will of God", in the Byzantine style standing figures ofHetoumright and Zabel left holding between them long with dot at base.
Ref:Bed.958
Good very fine.

Note thatZabel, daughter of Levon the Great, died C.1252 so these issues shouldbe circa1226-1252 but the issue might be an immobolized type struck tothe end of the reign.

Bedoukian andNercessian both have the obverse as the two standing figures.I beg todiffer the obverse is the lion side with the legend continuing onthereverse to read " Hetoum king of the Armenians by the will ofGod".Thisis the formula as found on all the silver coinage of Levon I.
