28 mm, 12.2 g. Cannot quite make the emperor's name, although the seller claims it's Maurice Tiberius. Any ideas?

Looks quite similar, but not identical, to SB 532 (Maurice Tiberius follis) on this page

http://www.wildwinds.com/coins/sb/i.html

The robe looks a little different (overlaps) and the writing on yours has IAIT about two o'clock on the bust side while the one in the Wildwinds list only says IAT, but the description says the legends are blundered so this might be a different die with different blundering. And of course yours is regnal year four, versus two on the coin in the Wildwinds list.

Other than that the writing, bust, and mint look the same, so I'm inclined to say this is the attribution.

Yes, SB 532, Maurice Tiberius. Confusing because the type is very similar to Tiberius II Constantine, right down to the legend (blundered DM TIB CONSTANT PP AVG)! The only difference is that Maurice's crown has a trefoil ornament (just visible) at center while that of Tiberius has a cross. Also, the similar type of Tiberius apparently begins with his year 5. The date here is year 4. The mint is Theoupolis.
