Byzantine Cyzicus, Mysia (518 - 629)
The mint at Cyzicus reopened during the reign of Justin I, c. 518, and closed c. 629. The city was captured temporarily by the Arabs in 675. It appears to have been ruined by a series of earthquakes, the first in 443 and the last in 1063. It was largely deserted as early as the eleventh century.
