It was struck at Constantinople between 920 and 944 AD in the name of the Emperor Romanus I. Romanus was a military commander who, in 920, during war time, took over the "Regency" of the child Emperor, Constantine VII, from his mother, Zoe. He went on to rule well and even though he was the "Junior" Emperor, he was the actual ruler. Eventually, in 944, he was suddenly and unexpectedly deposed by his sons, who then tried to assume power. However, Constantine VII who had married Romanus' daughter Helena, seized his chance and deposed them instead. Constantine named his own son, Romanus II as co-ruler.

Obverse: +RWMAN' ЬASILЄVS RWM' • Romanus Roman Emperor. • Facing bust of Romanus I, bearded, wearing crown and jeweled chlamys, and holding labarum and globus cruciger. • Chlamys: Purple mantle of office, like a short soldier's cloak. • Labarum: Military standard. • Globus cruciger: Orb of state with a cross on top.

The earth gave it a two-tone brown patina that is darker than these pictures show. If you collect Byzantine coins, you know they are often very crudely produced and this one was not an exception. The book says these were often overstruck on coins from previous reigns and this one may have been. Fully original and genuine, NOT a copy or reproduction, Real History in your hands.
