Denomination : Bronze Carzia.

Reference : I don't have a good reference on these.

Size : 13.7 x 13.9 mm. Weight : 0.60 grams.

Grade : VF/VG  but over cleaned and very slightly rough.  A little nicer than the image suggests, but there are weak areas in the strike.

Obverse : Short cross with a egg shaped mark in each quarter, with FRAN VENIRIO  DVX around (a few of the letters are weak).

Reverse : Lion of Cyprus rampart left.  There is a partial (some weak letters) inscription reading S MARCVS VENITVS.
