A Merovingian puzzle - literally


Recommended Posts

This fragmented coin fragment has been in my collection for a while, waiting for an ID. It's a fragment of a Merovingian tremissis, which arrived even more fragmented. Still, not too bad for €10 I guess ... 


I have no idea which is the obv, and which the rev. I've tried to mark the legend for easier reading/interpretation: 

DVN I (or T) A?

M ? N I I (perhaps MONII ?); with a letter E in the field? image.png.fb1321f8968885c3d9706db5bd8f4475.png

Assuming the coin was once perfectly round, it would have measured around 13.5 mm. This fragment weighs 0.33 g; it would probably have weighed around 1.2g or so (see separate image). 

The coin was found in France, according to the seller. Would really appreciate any insights!
