Wildwinds identifies this AE piece as belonging to SB 1813 which includes at least 8 different variations. The Wildwinds description as follows: Basil II and Constantine VIII, AE Class 2 anonymous follis. 976-1028 AD. IC-XC to left and right of bust of Christ, facing, with nimbate cross behind head, holding book of gospels, sometimes with dots in centre of book's border, cross in each limb of the cross / IhSUS XRISTUS bASILEU bASILE in four lines, ornament below. SB 1813. This coin weighs in at 10.08 grams and is 29 X 30.5 mm in diameter. As you can see from the attached pictures, there is enough wear to obscure all of the letters on the obverse except what appears to be an epsilon oriented point up at 9:00 o'clock. The single pellet in the exergue on the reverse leads me to think it could be n SB 1813 (2), however, the obverse for an SB 1813 (2) in Wildwinds appears to have a slightly different nimbate cross than my example. Any help in pointing me to other resources or a website with more information will be greatly appreciated. As an aside, this is my first Byzantine purchase and what got my attention is the nimbate cross with an almost ghostlike bust of Christ. Plus, I'm a sucker for larger irregular shaped coins. Thanks in advance.
