Name:  Akkar Hoard
Brief biography:  A hoard of sixth century Byzantine solidi found in Syria.

The Akkar Hoard, found in Syria in 1958, appears to initially have been known as the Hama II hoard, having been found also near Hama. Like the Hama Hoard, Akkar was split up and is mostly known to scholars through the work of Adelson.

Though it was found only two years after the Hama Hoard, the Akkar Hoard was probably buried two to four decades after it, having a terminus post quem in the reign of Maurice, rather than Justin II. Akkar also contained earlier solidi, stretching back to the reign of Justinian I. This is more typical for a gold hoard of this period and may suggest that the gold coins were circulating on their gold content, not necessarily falling out of use once the depicted emperor had died or been deposed.
