Ancient Egyptian artifacts statue
Bronze seated cat. The earliest Egyptian depiction of the cat took the form of three hieroglyphic symbols, each representing seated cats. These formed part of the phrase ‘Lord of the City of Cats’ inscribed on a stone block from El-Lisht that may date as early as the reign of Pepy II, 2278-2184 BC. The Egyptian word for cat was the onomatopoeic term miw. Covered in a green patina with a light earthen encrustation. 26th Dynasty.
Ancient Byzantine coins
Gold coin of Emperor Michael VII whose reign was mercifully brief. Born about 1050, the empire was run between his mother, Eudocia, until 1071. Michael's all to obvious weakness inspired numerous rebellions. Taxes were raised, the coinage debased and though numerous rebellions were put down, Michael's fall became inevitable. It was Nicephorus Botaneiates who led the rebellion that finally forced Michael to abdicate. On 31st March, 1078 Michael entered a monastery and Botaneiates took over as Nicephorus III. On the obverse, Christ.
