Justinian II. Second reign, 705-711. Æ Follis (1.45 g, 5h). Ravenna mint. Dated RY 21 (705/6). Crowned facing bust, holding globus cruciger and cross potent / Large M; cross above, date across field; RAV. DOC II 23; E-C 243; MIB III 54; SB 1445. VF for type, dark red-brown patina, a little rough. Rare.

The date is probably not RY 21, as given in DOC and SB, but rather the typical immobilized year 20, as at Constantinople (see previous lot), but with a contraction mark added.
