An imitative hexagram of the 7th century


In a Hungarian online numismatic forum (a closed Facebook group) in August 2016 a very particular silver coin appeared as a local find, probably near to Gyula, on the Great Hungarian Plain. On the obverse the coin shows the busts of Constans II and Constantine IV with a general design very similar, for example, to the hexagram MIB 151-2-3. Constans II is draped and facing, wearing a plumed helmet with star, and Constantine IV is draped and facing, but wearing a crown; between their heads, there is a cross.
