The paper summarizes the hypotheses and the observations about the shape and the origin of the different parts of the crown. Following the description of the irregularities of the placement of enamelled plates on the Byzantine crown, observations concerning the cruciform, curved shape of the corona latina are enumerated as well as hypotheses about its original destination (reliquary or asteriskos).
