I bought this as S.2201 of John Comnenus-Ducas, but it appears to be CLBC 14.36.3, Petrich 202-8, the Series III version of the common Latin small module Type A of Constantinople. The large IWAN to left is typical.
Also below is another example from the Christov collection.

CLBC vol. 1

JOHN, COMNENUS - DUCAS
( 1237 - 1244 )

14. 36. 3

Billon Trachy  Module 3               Mint of Thessalonica             Struck 1237 – 1242
Weight 0.39-1.03 g                     Diameter 11-18 mm              Avg diameter 14 mm
Die diameter 10-12 mm                Die axis – 180 ˚                                      Rarity 2




References: Petrich, p. 48-50, no. 202 – 208.
Private collection – 3 sp.
Hendy -; DOC IV -; Grierson -; Sear -.

Notes:  The reverse of this type is identical to the reverse image of 11.1. It is herein described as an issue of John, Comnenus-Ducas and Thessaloniki mint, because the inscription of the six known coins is quite clear - i¿an, and because the ruler is beardless. 
It is possible (see the Penchev’s idea, Petrich, p. 67) that the mint of Thessaloniki may have minted this coin to imitate the common and well accepted Latin issue type A, Module 3. 
In terms of modularity, the type occupies an intermediate position between the Module 3 and Module 4 – the three coins in Private collection have die diameters respectively 12, 11 and 10 mm.
