Quote from another example on CNG "

This lead object is clearly related to the series of late Roman/early Byzantine seals bearing a figural type on one side, with a legend in two lines in Latin or Greek on the other. Other seals with a menorah are also known, usually with a blank, globular reverse (cf. CNG E-245, lot 530 and CNG E-410, lot 103).

Byzantine tokens as a class are poorly understood and no good suggestions can yet be made as to their function. Many appear closely related to the seals, differing only in the absence of a cord or channel for attachment to a document, as with the present example. "
