Howdy Hoot and JJ!




Translate roughly "The Emperor Justinian"


On the reverse, the "M" is its denomination, a Follis. ANNO means year, and you will see the Roman numerals on the other side of the M as





Means regional year 16


From that, I found out the year it was minted. 562 AD - 563 AD


Under the M, you can kind of make out a "B". That is the mark of the official who minted it. Under that, you can see CON which tells it was minted in Constantinople
