Name:  Istanbul 1966 Hoard
Brief biography:  A hoard of mixed denomination gold coins from the sixth century found in Istanbul.

This hoard of sixth century gold coins found in Istanbul consisted of at least 2 Justinian I solidi, 2 Justin II solidi, 5 coins of Tiberius II – 4 solidi and one tremissis, and 46 Maurice solidi. It is possible, however, that the original find was larger and that these 55 coins were separated from it to be sold – a familiar story with hoards found at this time. The known composition of this hoard is similar to, though smaller than, the Akkar Hoard.
