Abstract : This paper combines the results of the previous research on the gold coinage of the Byzantine mint in Carthage and theIslamic mint in North Africa, together with new LA-ICP-MS analyses of 25 coins in the BnF and 92 SG measurementsconducted by T. Jonson in various collections. It includes a comparison of the various methods used. The changes inmetallic composition observed before and after the Muslim takeover are outlined. A tentative interpretation of the processof debasement of the first Arab series in North Africa (ca. 79-84/ 698-703) is offered.
