Justin I?
« on: June 18, 2021, 03:09:29 am »
I have recently bought a set of random coins. This coin brings a lot of headaches.
I think it is a coin from Justin I, SB 111.

You are very likely correct. It's either that or the very similar pentanummium of Justinian I. It's not possible to distinguish between Justin SBCV 111 and Justinian SBCV 240 unless you can read the obverse legend. But the Justinian type is much less common, as it was only struck for brief period after Justinian's accession.  If in doubt, as here, attribute to Justin I.
