I bought this coin last year at a car boot sale from curiosity. The seller told me it's Byzantine and wasn't able to give me more info. It is around 2 cm in diameter. I don't know anything about coins and not much about the Byzantine Empire. Nothing similar showed up at the google search.
The Empire existed from the 5th century AD until the 15th century, when Constantinopolis (Byzantium) fell into the hands of Turks. So the age of the coin can range from 600 to 1600 years. Or maybe it is only a fake. I would be grateful for somebody enlighten me. Thank you!!! :)))
