Islamic Coins

Islamic, Umayyad Caliphate, al-Walid I ibn 'Abd al-Malik, 705 - 715 A.D.

Click for a larger photo
Al-Walid ibn Abd al-Malik's reign saw the greatest expansion of the Caliphate, as successful campaigns were undertaken in Transoxiana, Sind, Hispania and against the Byzantines.

Balkh was an ancient city and center of Buddhism, Sufism and Zoroastrianism in what is now northern Afghanistan. It was one of the major cities of Khorasan, since the latter's earliest history. The Greeks called it Bactra, giving its name to Bactria. Marco Polo described Balkh as a "noble and great city." Outside the town was a large Buddhist monastery. Today it is mass of ruins and a small town 12 km from the right bank of the seasonally flowing Balkh River, at an elevation of about 365 m (1,200 ft), in the province of Balkh, about 20 km northwest of the provincial capital, Mazar-e Sharif.

Kaykhusraw I, the eleventh and youngest son of Kilij Arslan II, succeeded his father in 1192. He ruled 1192-1196 and 1205-1211, but had to fight his brothers for control of the Sultanate. He married a granddaughter of the Byzantine emperor Manuel I Komnenos. In 1207 he seized Antalya from its Frankish garrison and furnished the Seljuq state with a port on the Mediterranean. According to Niketas Choniates, he was killed in single combat by Theodore I Laskaris, the emperor of Nicaea, during the Battle of Antioch on the Meander.

This is light for a nomisma weight and we would suspect it is a game piece but Weber insists all these types of bronze with concentric rings are weights. He suggests some may be early Islamic.
