Details

This coin and others is mentioned by the chronicler Raymond of Aguilers, who accompanied Raymond IV, Count of Toulouse on the First Crusade, as being "erat haec nostra moneta" (roughly translated as "this was our money"), therefore meaning these were the coins that the Crusaders in the Holy Land brought with them and used.
