Kitov, I think you have something different there. Your lettering says John the Despot (Delta Epsilon Lunate-S Pi Tau). then something???? My Greek is not so good. John of Thessalonica indeed has the lettering Simon shows and you quote which seems to indicate 'Comenenus' (transliterated) in the second line.

After Nicea took over in 1242, John of Thessalonica was demoted to Despot, no? I think your coin might indicate that (?).
