Evening All,
I had this down as a grotty one but was really pleased to see it cleaned quite well - sorry no scale but it is TINY.
Presuming that is "HX" at the beginning of the legend on the obverse I don't think it is Roman ( I don't think it looks typically Roman either...) - well nothing came up when I punched that info into a legend reader on a roman coin website.... is it Byzantine?
Any help and knowledge much appreciated!
Ta in advance!
Alexander
