Denomination : Silver denier.  Mint : Antioch.

Date : time of Bohemond III or IV, AD 1163 to 1233.

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 : 17.4 x 18.1 mm.  Weight : 1.01 grams.

Grade : gVF with a bold portrait, but a weak area in the inscriptions on both sides.

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

Reverse : Short cross with a crescent in the upper right, all within a circle, with ANTIOCHIA around.

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.
