Commentary

The reading of the reverse monogram is not certain, as the bottom letter is cut off. The  is clearly present, but it is uncertain if a Δ is contained in ligature with it. However droungarios is by far the most likely reading.

The name on the obverse could also be Μαυρικίου (Maurikios).
