Coin of Theodore Doukas Angelos

Of outstanding interest for their original subjects are the coins circulated by the mint of Thessalonike in the 13th and 14th centuries. Certain representations are due to western influences, while others appear for the first time, such as the double-headed eagle and the monogram of the Palaeologan dynasty. During this period the rich coinage of Thessalonike influenced that of the rulers of Serbia and Bulgaria.
