Congratulations on a nice "found" coin! It is actually a Byzantine follis minted in Nikopolis. Not sure of the emperor...perhaps Justin II with his queen. You can search for similar coins in the Byzantine section here at Tantalus or at Wildwinds.com

When you get the full info please relist your coin in the proper category (Byzantine) so others will be able to find it for study, and then delete your original listing.

Thanks,
Joe W.
