A coin I received years ago and may have been in an uncleaned lot. Another ancient coin I do not know about. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    That's a Byzantine half follis - the K indicates the denomination in Greek... a full follis would be twice the size and have an M... some Byzantine Folles were marked in Roman numerals... XXXX for a full (40 nummi) follis, or XX (20 nummi) for a half.

    This coin is in rather poor condition. I can't tell the ruler from the photo, but I would guess a date of around 600-800 AD. Very common in this condition and not worth more than a few bucks, still an interesting old coin.
