The Sicilian Coinage of the Hohenstaufen has been studied since the 17th century. Today, with the splendid Medieval European Coinage 14 at our hands, scholars are still struggling when it comes to mint attributions for Henry’s Sicilian denari and taris: Palermo or Messina? Palermo and Messina? The coin finds from Monte Iato (PA) may shed light on this old problem: by starting from one coin type alone and examining the different subtypes and variants, we can catch a glimpse of the way coinage was organised in Sicily at the end of the 12th century.
