There's been a number of these nummi about, although without stars. Justin II sounds unconvincing - I'd guess they're Vandal period issues in North Africa, most likely Carthage, but maybe elsewhere.

You made -if I am not wrong- two posts for the same coin.
Just to complete this one as well:
Iustinianus AE nummus Carthage mint,
Sear 282

Sear 282 
AE nummus of Justinian I, mint of Carthage

Obverse: Bust facing. Legend normally illegible.

Reverse: Large Greek_Delta, with stars to left, to right, and underneath.

The description does seem to fit your coin, doesn’t it?

Bill/TK

 I can not disagree with calling it SB 282 as described. Though why then does CNG call their peice a "research coin", describes as rare? They appear to be the about the same coin?

Cordially

The majority of the Byzantine collectors nowadays, use Sear catalogue in order to achieve a fast identification of a coin.
Of course not all scholars always agree with the IDs given on the catalogue.

The coin under examination is for sure the one we call "Sear 282".
CNG has placed a question mark on Iustinus II name because scholars seem to reconsider which is the emperor.
Hahn in his new work MIBEC, calls this coin as "formerly attributed to Iustinianus"  and now he assigns it to Iustinus II based on a few similarities he noticed between the A and stars of this coin and some other Iustinus II coins.
According to the above, you chose the emperor  Smiley

PS
Lately some good quality specimens have come to light which made it clear that the letter on the reverse is not  Greek_Delta but some form of  Greek_Alpha as it is pictured on the lovely  CNG specimen.
