Lot 422
Estimate: 750 CHF
Time of Leontius, 695-698. Georgios, General Commerciarios of the Apotheke of Isauria, 695-697. Seal (Lead, 32 mm, 30.59 g, 12 h), Indictions 9 and 10 of Leontius, 696/7. ΓΕΩPΓ[IOC A]ΠO YΠATΩN / ł-I/Θ Leontius, crowned, standing facing, wearing chlamys and holding globus cruciger. Rev. [S] ΓE/NIKOY KO/MMEPKIA/PIOY AΠOΘI/KHC EΠAPX/IAC ICAYP/[IAC] in seven lines. Cf. Zacos I, 191-192 for similar seals from Armenia and Caria; for a seal, which might possibly be of the same commerciarios, see Zacos I 177. A strongly impressed and clear example with a tan patina. Some minor defects and marks, otherwise, about extremely fine.



The commerciarii were charged with the duty of collecting the "κομμέρκιον", a 10% tax applied, as is the VAT of today, on all commercial activities. The use of a double indiction date means that the seal's issuer had been in office for two years, in this case 695/6 and 696/7, and that the seal was made during his second year in office.
