Byzantine Empire, Maurice Tiberius, 13 August 582 - 22 November 602 A.D.
When this coin was struck, control of the Italian peninsula was divided between the Romans (Byzantines) and Lombards. In 584, the Byzantine Exarchate of Ravenna was established to organized civil and military control of Byzantine territories in Italy and Sicily into duchies under the exarch (governor) in Ravenna. Also in 584, the Lombards re-established a unified monarchy after a 10 year interregnum (Rule of the Dukes). Threatened by a Frankish invasion, the Lombards elected Authari as their king and gave him the capital of Pavia (Northern Italy).
