It's a drachm of Khusro II, mint AW. I've moved it over to the appropriate board.

This is not a coin of Khursro II, but of Kavad I, second reign, 498-531 AD.  The mint is AW (some references list it as AU), Ahwaz.  I can't read the date completely, but I think it might be year 37.

Kavad, AW, year 17 or 18 (or 14 if that's a 'c' before the 'h').
