Note: According to Sear's Byzantine Coins and Their Values, on page 110, Mr. Sear notes on coin 447, the legends in this series are normally blundered.  Also, the series can only be differentiated from the Maurice Tiberius pieces of his nearly identical series by the ornament on the emperor's crown.  Tiberius II has a cross, where Maurice Tiberius has a trefoil ornament.
