Drawing on newly available material and coins in museum collections this paper offers a revision on the classification of some of the Crusader coinages of Edessa and Antioch. Three areas will be considered: 1) the light folles of Baldwin II of Edessa; 2) the folles of Bohemond I at Antioch; and 3) the billon deniers of Raymond of Poitiers at Antioch. Both new specimens that have appeared in trade over the past fifteen years, and coins in public collections in Europe and North America, provide compelling evidence that a revision of these classifications in both timely and necessary.
