A brief annotation This coin has been issued to commemorate the 800th anniversary of Toros Roslin’s birth. Toros Roslin is a miniaturist and scribe of the second half of the 13th century, one of the outstanding representatives of the Cilician School of Miniature. The seven luxuriously illustrated books bearing Toros Roslin’s signature have been preserved, two of which, “The Gospel of Zeitoun” (1256) and “The Gospel of Malatya” (1268), are kept in Matenadaran - the Yerevan depository of manuscripts. More than two hundred preserved pictures and elegant letter-patterns of Toros Roslin’s manuscripts have enriched the artistic inheritance of the 13th century. As a talented person, scribe, chronologist and incomparable miniaturist Toros Roslin has its own indispensable place in the history of medieval art among the best painters of the East and the West.
