Byzantine Empire, Andronicus II Palaeologus, 1282 - 24 May 1328 A.D.
Sear and other older references describe the figure on the reverse right as Christ. Other references note the identity as uncertain. A few more recent finds with clear inscriptions have provided the answer; the figure on the right is named as the "Mother of God."
