Seller: zurqieh_dubai (6,975) 100%, Location: DUBAI, DUBAI, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 391475424360 Condition: 100 % GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC, Details: BYZANTINE. AE BREAD STAMP IN FORM OF CRESCENT. INSCRIBED CONPHO. C. AD 400-600.The shape of this interesting stamp suggests that even in Byzantine times people baked and ate croissant-shaped breads. The Latin inscription is nonsense if interpreted as a single word or name, but one wonders if it should be read as CON PHO, referring to the capital of Constantinople and the emperor Phocas (AD 602-610). On the other hand, another example is known with the Greek inscription EIXTHYC ("fish"). A fascinating item worthy of further study.62 X 48 X 33 MMBUY WITH CONFIDENCE , 100% AUTHENTIC ITEMS AT AFFORDABLE PRICES.
