I have this coin of Sulayman II or Suleiman II depending on the spelling of the source...
I think the seller's identification
is correct. However, I was hoping to get a bit
of an explanation of the where the date is, how to read it and what exactly the script says on the reverse
As with many descriptions accompanying coins... I can find the attributions and basic details but no exact reading of the reverse
Also is there a good
web resource for coins of this type
? A specialist's site maybe... something beyond acsearch
and other auction
SELJUQ OF RUM: Sulayman II, 1196-1204, AE fals AH595,
A-1205.2, horseman right, with royal title al-sultan,
30 mm, 8.17 grams
PS: Although the green looks like it could be trending bronze disease
... it seems to be just stable mineral encrustations. Not powdery or flaky. The green is solid... could be old disease that has stabilized I suppose.
