CRUSADER.GREECE.Island of MYTILENE.Francesco II Gattilusio AD 1384-1403.AR.Soldino. ( 1.07g, 14.8mm)
Pascal lamb standing left, head reverted, holding banner behind back with right leg.
Reverse.Cross with Bs in each quarter.
Coin ref:Schl.XVI.17-18.
The undertype:The coin is an Ottoman Ache issued during the period of interregnum and can only be an issue of Suleyman Celebi 806-813H ( AD 1403-1410) because he is the first person to have issued a coin bearing the toughra, for examples of his coinage see illustrations in� Pere Plate 3, no's 20, 22 and 23.
Since Francesco II died in 1403 and Suleymans rule began in AD 1403 this narrows the striking of our coin to a very short time frame.

Better than very fine and very rare.
