A few minor areas of weakness, otherwise about EF.According to MEC (1, p.575) it is not certain how coins with G in the reverse field should be distributed between Gregory, Gottschalk and Gisulf II.
Gregory (died 739/740) was a nephew of Liutprand , who appointed him Duke of Beneventum in 732 or thereabouts after removing both the usurper Audelais and the minor Gisulf II.
He was married to Giselperga.
