 Tiberius II Constantine
Tiberius was born in a Latin speaking region of Thrace sometime during the middle of the 6th century AD.
Tiberius was able to avoid becoming entangled in Sophia's intrigues and her influence waned as Tiberius' popularity grew.
Late in 582 Tiberius became gravely ill. He appointed Maurice and Germanus as his heirs and each was engaged to one of Tiberius' daughters and elevated to the rank of Caesar.

 Justin II - Open Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Justin II, the Byzantine emperor from 565 to 578, was the nephew and successor of Justinian I.
He availed himself of his influence as master of the palace, and as husband of Sophia, the niece of the late empress Theodora, to secure a peaceful election.
Passing over his own relatives, he raised, on the advice of Sophia, the general Tiberius to be Caesar in December 574 and withdrew for his remaining years into retirement.

 Roman Emperors - DIR Ino
Tiberius had long been married to Ino, a lady already well into middle-age, for she had been a widow, and had had a daugher of marriageable age, prior to her marriage to Tiberius.
Tiberius had initially been betrothed to this daughter by this first marriage, but on his fiancée's death Tiberius instead married Ino herself, now a widow, and they had had three children, (two daughters) Charito and Constantina,[[1]] as well as a third child who had presumably died.
On her arrival, Tiberius arranged for her to be met by the senate and patriarch in the palace and she was invested immediately with the royal insignia, after which she proceeded in a covered litter to St Sophia, and was acclaimed by the factions of Blues and Greens.

 (133) Tiberius Constantine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Tiberius I was made Caesar by Justin II in A.D. 574 and renamed Tiberius Constantine.
Tiberius inherited Justin's problems, including the war with the Persians that had begun under Justin, and he was only able to hold the Persians at bay.
The immediate inspiration for the image may have been the golden cross that was erected on Mount Calvary in the reign of Theodosius II (A.D. Although the type was used only once in sixth-century coinage, it was often used during the seventh and eighth centuries.

Constantine IV came to the throne after the murder of his father, Constans II, in A.D. 668 and ruled first in association with his brothers, Heraclius and Tiberius.
Afterwards he ruled alone until his death in A.D. The most significant event of the reign of Constantine IV was the Arab siege of Constantinople, which lasted from A.D. 674 until A.D. 678 and ended with the decisive defeat of the Arabs.
On this solidus, Constantine briefly revived the old armored portrait bust, which had for the most part been replaced by the portrait of the emperor wearing the chlamys (see no. 135).

Flavius Mauricius Tiberius Augustus or Maurice I (539 - November, 602) was the emperor of the Byzantine Empire from 582 to 602.

At the same time he is secretly writing a play for the English underground resistance about Boudicca's rebellion, with Boudicca meant to be analogous to the imprisoned Elizabeth I.

It is amazing that there are even any coins produced from this period (or about the period immediately afterward.) Tiberius II had been making the decisions for the empire for the last four years, and this joint reign was more of a formality of accession than of practical need.
Needless to say the coinage of this period is exceedingly rare.

 Christianism Addition 28
"The greatest change which the Empire underwent in the early fourth century was, of course, the conversion of Constantine [see 1267] and the consequent rise of Christianity [Christianism] to be the dominant and eventually the sole religion of the Roman world.
The change was gradual, and still not quite complete in the sixth century.
He condemns it as being below mediocrity in style, and faulty in its syntax; and at the same time calls in question the author's veracity, saying that he makes up stories so incredible that he may fairly be regarded as a writer of fables rather than of facts." [iii].
