Description

England. Aethelred II. 978-1016. AR Half Penny (10mm, 0.57g). Crux type (BMC iiia, Hild. C). Exeter(?) mint; Goda(?) moneyer. Struck circa 991-997. [+]ÆÐELRED REX [ΛNGLOX], bareheaded draped bust left with scepter in front / +GOD[A M¯O EA]XEC, short cross voided, C [R V] X in angles. North 770; BEH 536(?); SCBI 7 (Copenhagen), 185 (?). Near Very Fine, line perforation, slightly bent.

With the remaining legends GOD and XEC it is quite plausible that the present coin was minted by Goda at Exeter mint. The Copenhagen piece also supports the stylistic similarities.
