The paper examines Westerink’s edition of Psellos’s poems, their place in the sequence of his work and their authenticiy. A new approach to some of these poems is discussed as well, i.e. the question of treating poems this far considered to be separate items ( epigr . 34 a–e) as one single poem of six lines.

The point of departure for the present investigation are three technical pecularities of the “corona graeca”that make it difficult to be interpreted either as a genuine Byzantine, or a Western artefact. The iconography of two triple groups of images on the crown corresponds to “Romano-Bytantin”ideas of the “Renovation”of imperial power, adapted also by the Ottonians. The original crown could be made for a Byzantine empress of the 11th century and adapted for King Géza of Hungary by addition of his enamel plaque.
