    Heraclonas (AD 641). AV solidus (19mm, 4.46 gm, 6h). Constantinople mint, 4th officina. Crowned figures of Heraclonas, Heraclius, and Heraclius Constantine standing facing, each holding globus cruciger / VICTORIA AVGU, Cross potent set on three steps; monogram to left, Є to right; Δ // CONOB. DOC 44d (Heraclius). SB 770 (Heraclius). NGC AU 5/5 - 4/5.

    This final issue of the "three kings" solidus type begun by Heraclius appears to have been struck during the brief reign of his son Heraclonas, February-September AD 641. Heraclonas had been favored by the Empress Martina marked out as senior Augustus, along with his brother Constantine III. But the mysterious death of Constantine in May of 641 led to suspicions he had been poisoned by Heraclonas and Martina. Both were overthrown and mutilated; Constans II, son of Constantine III, was proclaimed ruler in their stead.
