Commentary

Cf. DOC 1:285, no. 54. The presence of two pellets in the center of the mark of value on the reverse hints at MIBEC 162, no. 104 (Maurice, Antioch), but the monogram on the obverse is more like that of Tiberios and contains letters for Ti(beri) Konstantinou (genitive).

MIBEC 126, no. 61.

Acquisition History
