I like figural Islamic coins.  So I purchased this interesting Islamic Ae dirham? It measures 23.52 mm and weighs 4.0g (it has been holed).  On the obverse is what appears to be a rider on a leopard or lion in an inset beaded circle surrounded by a caption.  Could this be an issue of either the Artuqids of the Seljuk Sultans of Rum?  All comments would appreciated in helping me identify this interesting coin.  Pogh_poor

Most likely Ilkhanid fals as I can read the sultan's name of Ulijatue on obverse border.

Thank you for the help!  I think that it is indeed a Ilkhanid fals issued by Uljaytu / Öljaitü.  I think that it is:
