Coronation cloak?[edit]

Does anybody have a public domain picture of this? Srnec 05:08, 21 October 2006 (UTC) The Coronation mantle pictured is from a 1893 artists rendering and is not the actual mantle. Which makes you guys look like a cheesy pretend encyclopedia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Charanga1940 (talkcontribs) 12:54, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

It's not the coronation cloak of Roger II. Cf. this edit with sources. --ThT (talk) 14:45, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

Coinage[edit]

Roger II tari gold coin, with Arabic inscriptions, minted in Palermo.

University[edit]

A somewhat dubious sounding establishment - possibly even a hoax. Their website has four pages - all in Italian and not telling you anything of value. I've deleted the article about it as it was a direct translation of the website's words - copyvio, in other words. Not a lot on Google except mirrors of the same text.

I've taken it out - if anyone finds it's real, reputable and rightfully here please let me know. Peridon (talk) 17:43, 8 September 2012 (UTC)
