CENTRAL ASIA. Uncertain tribe. 7th century AD. AV Bracteate (23mm, 0.90 g). Crowned facing bust with spear over shoulder, of the type of early Byzantine solidi, with fluttering Sasanian-style streamers around the bust; round vase and star in fields. VF, holed.

An intriguing mixture of types adopted for this ornamental gold piece, possibly from one of the Hunnic tribes.
