Arab-Byzantine imitation of half-follis of Constans II. Note slightly irregular details such as blundered reverse inscription, shape, and broken and irregular form of letters. The obverse is more imitative and the reverse is more derivative. Arab-Byzantine imitations of half-folles are extremely rare.
