Basil I the Macedonian, with Constantine and Leo VI. 867-886. Æ Follis (22mm, 3.96 g, 5h). Contemporary imitation(?). Crowned facing half-length figures of Basil, wearing loros and holding akakia, flanked by Leo and Constantine, each wearing chlamys / Legend in five lines. Cf. DOC 11; cf. SB 1712. VF, green patina.

The debased reverse legend and crude, light-weight flan suggest this is a contemporary imitation.
