Byzantine Empire, Tiberius III Apsimar, Late 698 - Summer 705 A.D.
All coins of Tiberius III are scarce or rare.
After the Arabs took Carthage, the disgruntled army declared Tiberius emperor. He mutilated Leontius (the previous emperor), cutting off his nose, just as Leontius had done to Justinian II. After Justinian II attacked and regained his throne, both Leontius and Tiberius were beheaded.
