Michael IV
« on: May 13, 2019, 05:02:26 AM »
I enjoy trying to figure these out. I do think this is a Michael IV from around 1034-1041 AD...not in the best condition :-(  about 30mm and 14.7g.  Looks like a CON mint.

Byzantine for sure. Can't see enough of the text to match it against coins in Wildwinds. As for the mint, I read ER.. There is in any case a horizontal bar in the first letter that makes it something else than a C.

I'm seeing CON on the mint but my eyes could be wrong.  She is in pretty rough shape, though.
