Description
These Gold Coins are Set in 18 Karat Gold Cuff Links Justin II was the nephew of Justinian I and was chosen for succession before his unc1e’s death. His assumption of power was made more difficult by the over-ambitious policies of his predecessor. Faced with invasions of the Lombards in Italy and Visigoths in Spain, Justin appointed Tiberius II Constantine as Caesar, who acted as regent from A.D. 574 - 578. These beautiful coins show the - emperor facing frontally, wearing a crown and holding a globe surmounted by Victory. The style is pure Byzantine with lovely abstract elements, such as the minimal lines representing the emperor’s c1ock. The radiant luster of the gold, combined with their ancient elegance, makes these cuff links as unique and remarkable as the person who chooses to wear them. - (FJ.6313)
