To a question of time of the termination of issue of the Cherson-Byzantine coins
with monograms of “Basil” name and “despot” title in Cherson
The article deals with the question of the duration of emission in Cherson bronze Byzantine coins with monograms words “Basil” and “despot” traditionally attributed to the initial period of the reign of Emperor Basil II. Based on the statistical analysis of closed coin complexes abroad X—XI centuries of excavation of Cherson, in which the above-mentioned coin-type account for 25% of the number of members, it was concluded that the coin type issued until the first decade of the XI c., but not before 988 or 989 year, as previously thought.
Key words: Byzantine Cherson, numismatics, monetary emission, indoor coin complex.
