D N ANASTA-SIVS P P AVC Diademed, helmeted and cuirassed bust of Anastasius 3/4 facing to right, holding spear in his right hand and shield ornamented with rider over his left left shoulder. Rev.

The absence of an officina letter is atypical for Solidi minted in Constantinople. Additionally the presence of two stars on the reverse is considered a "mint mark" for the mint of Thessalonica, and can be seen in Solidi of Anastasius's preceding emperors, like Zeno, Leo I etc.
