I have not been very numismatically active these last two months. Work has been very busy and I have been occupied by vacation planning and the final plans for my son's wedding (next week).

I recently added four medieval coins issued by the Kingdom of Sicily under the Normans to my gallery. They apparently attracted little interest as they received no views when posted. I was initially drawn to this series because so many of the coins were bilingual, a mix of Arabic and Latin. I currently have a dozen coins from the Normans of Sicily in my gallery. The four I added are:

A tiny (less than 8 mm.) billon kharruba issued by Roger I "Bosso" (Count, 1085-1101), who conquered Sicily and planted the de Hauteville dynasty there. Tje legends on this coin are entirely in Arabic, albeit with a prominent Greek letter as the major design feature:

An AE follaro issued by his son, Roger II (Count 1105-1130; King 1130-1154), the first of the dynasty to be crowned king. The legends on this coin are a mix of Greek and Latin (no Arabic). These are typically on a crowded flan with a weak strike, and this coin compares favorably for the type:

An AR kharruba (or fraction of dirhem), dated 553 or 554 A.H. (= 1158/59-1159/60 A.D.) issued by William I, "the Bad" (1154-1166). The legends on this coin are only in Arabic.

Finally, an AR 1/4 tercenarius (or possibly half denaro) issued by Tancred (1189-1194). This is the only bilingual Arabic and Latin coin in the group. It was also issued on a crowded flan.

As always, any thoughts or corrections to the attributions/descriptions would be welcome.

I recently acquired eight Islamic copper coins that were being sold as 8th century Ummayad falus. So far, I have been able to attribute seven of them, none being Ummayad.

One is an Ayyubid fals:

The others are all Mamluk falus:

This is definitely not an area in which I am very familiar, and sadly do not read Arabic. Any thoughts/comments about my attributions and descriptions would be appreciated, as would be any assistance in translating the Arabic.
