King Echmarcach mac Ragnalll of Isles and Dublin and Galloway. 1035AD. ****** and later King Murchad mac Diarmata These and the next two rows are all the same period of later Viking-Norse-Hiberno settlement in Ireland. The center coin appears to have protruding lips and smaller nose.

Same Kings as the preceding row above, but this example appears to be a much more realistic portrait.

Same Kings as the 2nd preceding row above, but these examples are typical medieval Hiberno-Norse portraits.
