BYZANTINE EMPIRE.Anonymous.AE.Follis,Class C.12.06g.Constantinople mint
( attributed to the reign of Michael IV AD 1034-1041 ).
+EMMANOVHΛ Nimbate standing facing half length of Christ Antiphonetes, right hand raised in benediction book of gosples in left hand.
Reverse.Jewelled cross IX XC NI KA " Jesus Christ, he who conquers"
Ref:Sear 1825
About very fine for type, nice earthen deposit which gives the coin a nice constrast.

This is the only anonymous issue which we can be certain was copied directly from an actual icon; Christ Antiphonites. No doubt the other anonymous types in were modled after famous icons now lost to art history.
