Johannes, 20 November 423 - May 425 A.D.

Johannes was Honorius' secretary and assumed the throne upon Honorius' death. Theodosius II, the emperor at Constantinople refused to recognize him and marched into Italy at the head of a formidable army. Johannes did not stand a chance. He was captured at Ravenna in early summer 425 A.D., tortured, mutilated, exhibited in the circus mounted on an ass and executed. All coins of Johannes are rare.

This type has been attributed to the time of Johannes and Boniface in Carthage 423 - 425 A.D., but strong evidence is lacking. We may more safely assume the series is later and copying official issues. The star is probably a crude Christogram or degenerated cross.
