Crusaders in Antioch.  Bohemond III or IV, AD 1163 to 1216.

Denomination : Silver denier. Mint : Antioch.

Reference : COINS OF THE CRUSADER STATES - many varieties listed on pages 213 to 220, and I have not tried to figure out which variety this is.

Size : 16.9 x 17.7 mm. Weight : 0.98 grams.

Grade :  gVF, reverse spotty.

Obverse
: Knights head in chain mail left, with a star behind and a crescent in front, with BOAHVNDVS around.

Reverse : Short cross with a crescent in the upper right, all within a circle, with ANTIOCHIA around.  The reverse has spots of minor encrustations.

I personally have never been confortable with attempts to attribute specific varieties of this coinage to either Bohemond III or IV, and prefer to just attribute them to that general period.
