Constantine VIII on the reverse of this coin, with crown, pelled labarum and akakia.
Constantine VIII (in Greek Konstantinos VIII, written Κωνσταντίνος Η') (960 – November 15, 1028), Byzantine emperor (December 15, 1025 – November 15, 1028) was the son of the Emperor Romanus II and the younger brother of the eminent Basil II, who died childless and thus left the rule of the Byzantine Empire in his hands.
Technically, Constantine became co-emperor with his brother when Basil assumed the throne in 976 at the age of 18, but during the 49 years that Basil II ruled, his brother had little role in the affairs of state even though Basil was often away from Constantinople fighting wars.

 Roman Emperors DIR Zoe Porphyrogenita
Constantine VIII had a reputation for brutality and a short temper, and he was not going to let this stop him.
Michael's uncle Constantine was brought back from exile to confess that he had 5,300 lbs of gold hidden in a cistern in his house, and was then returned to exile (Theodora was as noted for her parsimony as Zoe was for her extravagance), while the workings of government continued as usual.
Constantine, whom several people (including Michael IV) had seen as a potential emperor, had been accompanied, during his seven years in exile on Mytilene, by his devoted mistress, Maria Scleraina, his second wife's cousin,[[61]] who was to be prominent at court over the next few years.

Possessed of a strong and austere character, she refused the hand of the heir-presumptive, Romanus, who was married instead to her sister Zoe (1028).
After two months of active participation in government she allowed herself to be virtually superseded by Zoe's new husband, Constantine IX.
Upon his death in 1054, in spite of her seventy years, she reasserted her dormant rights with vigour, and frustrated an attempt to supersede her on behalf of the general Nicephorus Bryennius.

The sections of the Ekphrasis presented here are his descriptions of the Mausolea of Constantine and Justinian which formed part of the Holy Apostles complex.
Mesarites states clearly that Constantius, Constantine's son built the Mausoleum, although it has been argued convincingly (following Eusebius) that Constantine built the rotunda himself as a free-standing structure, and the original church, which Justinian rebuilt, was erected later by Constantius.
Two later versions, state, like Mesarites, that the tomb of Constantine VIII (1025-8) was the last to be located within the Mausoleum of Constantine.

 AllRefer.com - ZoE (Ancient History, Late Roman And Byzantine, Biography) - Encyclopedia
ZoE was first married when she was 50 years old at the request of her father to insure stability in the empire.
The chief event of the period was the final schism between the Eastern Church and the Western Church, brought about by the attacks of Michael Cerularius, patriarch of Constantinople, on the papacy and by the attacks of the legates of Pope Leo IX on the patriarchate.
After ZoE's death in 1050, Constantine continued to rule jointly with Theodora; he died in 1055, and Theodora in 1056; Michael VI, a Byzantine nobleman who was chosen her successor, was forced to abdicate in 1057 in favor of Isaac I, founder of the Comnenus dynasty.
