The emperor Leontius, who had only recently taken the throne from Justinian II, was easily defeated and Aspimar took the throne with the name Tiberius. Tiberius mutilated Leontius' nose and imprisoned him, just as Leontius had done to Justinian II. In 705, Justinian II returned to Constantinople with an army of Bulgars and Slavs. He gained entrance to the city by climbing through an aqueduct pipe and with the advantage of surprise regained his throne. Both Leontius and Tiberius were dragged through the streets in chains and beheaded. All coins of Tiberius III are scarce or rare.BZ88336.
