Can someone identify this old hand-stamped copper coin? Is it possibly Chinese?

Running a reverse image search would indicate this coin is Byzantine,not Chinese.

A similar coin can be found on ebay, listed as Coin of Byzantium Mauritius Tiberius enter image description here

Others with similar markings were sold by a dealer here where they are listed as Four Byzantine Bronze Coins. This one is quite similar again:

That site also classifies the coins as Follis
