Constans II, Cherson or Bosporus, and the reform of the copper coinage under Constantine IV
Royal Numismatic Society
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.
