Item Description:

These bronze coins of the Byzantine Empire are known as a follis. The large "M" or "K" struck onto the reverse indicates the denomination, which was 40 or 20 nummi respectively. They all date back to approximately the 7th century CE, and feature various emperors on the obverse side. Their size varies between 3/4 inches (15mm) and 1 1/4 inches (30mm) in diameter.

The Byzantine Empire (also known as the Eastern Roman Empire) was a continuation of the ancient Roman Empire. It technically formed in 395 AD when the empire split into East and West, though Romans at the time hardly made that distinction. While the Western Empire would fall in the late 400's AD, Byzantine rule lasted well into the Middle Ages until 1453.
