Lot 581. Justin II. 565-578. Æ nummus. Contemporary imitation(?). Copying Antioch.
Justin II. 565-578. Æ nummus (9 mm, 0.85 g, 5 h). Contemporary imitation(?). Copying Antioch. Diademed, draped and cuirassed bust of Justin II right / Monogram within circular border. Cf. DOC 149; cf. MIBE 66; cf. SB 387. Dark brown patina with earthen encrustations. Clear monogram and portrait. Very fine.
A seemingly unrecorded monogram for the issue, thus perhaps imitative. Additionally, the official issue does not have the linear border on the reverse.
