A Gigliato of Francesco I Gattilusio

He was a pirate from Genoa and his life could be the topic of any Hollywood romance: He rescued the Byzantine emperor, was rewarded with the rule over an island and married a princess. Written sources tell us that Francesco also struck coins. It is the second specimen of a gigliato only that will be sold at auction next week.
