New decanummium of Justin II from Carthage (c. 566-572 AD)

David Martínez Chico


This note aims to present a new coin of Justin II struck in Carthage. The peculiarity of
this coin is that its reverse is uniquely different and thus allows us to complete the series of the
decanummia. In addition, the present coin was part of a hoard that appeared in Turkey in the
decades of 1970-1980, and which was composed of more than 150 Byzantine bronzes.
