  .

Type ES7
AE15. 6:00. 2.99 grams
VIC-TOR (tooled and smoothed)
Justin I, possibly Justinian
Note the shield at his left hand.






Type ES7
AE15. 6:00. 3.06 grams.
VIC-TOR
Justin I, possibly Justinian

Type ES8. VICTOR  emp stg w labarum. No photo. 

 




Type ES9
AE15-14. 6:00. 2.82 grams.
Justin I (IVS-TINVS is almost legible)
VIC-TOR
Note the globe held in his left hand.

 

Type ES10:  VICTORIA AVGGGE, emp standing. No photo here, but Hahn's photo is just like ES9, but blundered with a longer legend ending GGGE. Hahn (2000): "one die .. a thoughtless copy of the solidus legend." If I were creating this site for the first time I would no list this as a separate type. I think it is just an accidental blunder. 

 


Justinian I:

 


  
Type ES11
AE17. 5:30. 4.17 grams. Unusually large.
This resembles the previous ES9 coin but has a longer
obverse legend with "...TI-NIA.." making it Justinian. 

 

 


Type ES12
AE15. 6:00. 2.20 grams.
Monogram
Obverse legend legible:
DN IVSTIN-IANVS PP AVG

 

  
 

Type ES12

AE15. 6:00. 2.07 grams.
Monogram

Obverse legend legible:
DN IVSTINI-ANVS PP AVG
