Leo II, 474. Nummus (Bronze, 11.5 mm, 0.99 g, 6 h), Constantinople. [D N] LEO-[PE]RPEP AVG Diademed, draped and cuirassed bust of Leo to right. Rev. SE - CN Victory advancing to left, looking right, holding wreath and dragging captive; all within laurel wreath. The obverse, which is clearly in the name of a Leo as Augustus, not Caesar, is apparently unknown. For the reverse, see RIC X, p. 312, 949 (Zeno, second reign). Apparently unpublished and unique. Of great historical interest. With fairly clear inscriptions and a dirty, coppery patina. Very fine.
