Abstract
It is argued that an unusually heavy copper type of Constans II which has traditionally been dated to about 658/9 and attributed to either Cherson or Bosporus was probably a halffollis struck in Constantinople just before the accession of Constantine IV in 668 and his reform of the copper coinage.
