Hi, all.  Here is a very unusual lead tessera from Caesarea Maritima with an Arabic (Kufic?) inscription.  I have been trying to decipher it using Richard Plant's book, but there are so many variations and I am not having any luck.  It is very difficult to get a good photograph, but I am still trying.  Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.  Thanks, Jimi

This probably won't help, but this is what I think I can see...
