Today, from Roma, a RY 20 follis of Constantinople arrived, along with a follis of Phocas. This coin, a follis of Maurice Tiberius wearing a consular robes, was lot 1518 of E-Sale 96. Maurice Tiberius Æ 40 Nummi. Constantinople, dated RY 20 = AD 601/2. D N mAVR TIbЄR P P A, crowned bust facing, wearing consular robes, holding mappa and eagle-tipped sceptre / Large M; ☧ above, ANNO to left, XX (date) to right, CON in exergue. MIBE 68D; DOC 44-5; Sear 495. 12.14g, 33mm, 7h. Yesterday another Constantinople follis of Maurice Tiberius arrived. I am not sure if this follis has a regnal year of 20 or 21, so any help in this area would be much appreciated. Unlike the the first coin, this one has him helmeted, draped and cuirassed, which I have seen with some of his earlier folles from this mint. Did Constantinople produce folles of Maurice Tiberius in both consular robes and helmeted, draped and cuirassed in year 20? The coin itself is not in the best shape, unevenly struck and with deposits and some corrosion on the reverse. Could there be a I under the last X of the regnal year? It is hard to determine because it is in an area of weak strike with some deposits, but there seems to be a vertical thick line next to the base of the M. Also the positioning of the two Xs seem positioned higher, compared to the first coin, to accommodate the I? There is also an odd cross bar in the M, extending from the right side to just above the middle. The significance of this design (it is not a deposit), I am not sure of. 12.42 grams The other two coins, from Roma are folles of Phocas and an earlier one of Maurice Tiberius, with a nice provenance. In addition to a strong portrait of Phocas, this coin is an overstrike, quite common with his bronze coins. The overstruck coin appears to be one of Maurice Tiberius, with part of the legend appearing on the reverse. The legend itself is muddled, but I have seen this appearing on some of his other folles. This coin was lot 1526 of Roma E-Sale 96. Phocas Æ 40 Nummi. Nicomedia, year 5 = AD 606/7. D M FOCA PЄR AVς, bust facing, wearing crown with pendilia and consular robes, holding mappa and cross / ANNO above large XXXX, Ч(date) to right; NIKOB in exergue. MIBE 69b; DOC 57b; Sear 659. 10.74g, 31mm, 6h. Finally, this an earlier follis of Maurice Tiberius, RY 5, from Roma E-Sale 95, lot 1487. Maurice Tiberius Æ 40 Nummi. In the name of Tiberius II. Theoupolis (Antioch), dated RY 5 = AD 586/7. Blundered legend, crowned facing bust, wearing consular robes, holding mappa and eagle-tipped sceptre / Large M; cross above, ANNO to left, Ч (date) to right, ƮHЄUPO' in exergue. MIBE 95Ab; DOC 156; Sear 532. 12.60g, 31mm, 6h. From the Vitangelo Collection, collector's ticket included. According to Sear, the trefoil ornament on the crown of the emperor distinguishes this coin from the issue of the previous emperor, Tiberius II Constantine. Under Maurice Tiberius this issue continued to be struck in the name of Tiberius II albeit with badly blundered inscriptions.
