My first Byz!
« on: August 02, 2003, 02:52:51 am »
I think it's Anastasius. It's 12 mm. and has a bearded bust(I think). To the left of tyhe bust I can  read XPV and to the rt. SAV. Not 100% sure about all the letters and the scan doesn't show it well at all. :( The rev. is Epsilon in a circle w/ the letter B beneath. Pretty neat stuff!!! :)

Could we have a clearer picture of the obverse?

The last part of the legend sounds OK, and seems we have an Anastasius or Justinianus, but we need a lighter picture of the obverse.
