Click for a larger photo
Ephesos, on the west coast of Anatolia, was one of the 12 cities of the Ionian League. It was famous for its Temple of Artemis, completed around 550 B.C., one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The usual symbols of this nature-goddess are the torch, stag, and the bee. Coins of Ephesos most frequently depict a bee on the obverse. The high-priest of the temple of Artemis was called the King Bee, while the virgin priestesses were called honey-bees (Melissae). Ephesus was one of the seven churches of Asia cited in the Book of Revelation and the Gospel of John may have been written there.

Click for a larger photo
Sindh is an ancient name for the Indus valley from the Arabian Sea to the Salt Range with Mansura in the south and Multan in the north. The name Pakistan is formed from an acronym, the S for Sindh. From early 8th century A.D., this area was ruled by governors appointed by the Umayyad and then the Abbasid Caliphs. In the 9th century A.D., two separate kingdoms ruled from Mansura and Multan. The rulers of Mansura are known as Amirs of Sindh or Habbarids. Very little is known about them apart from their coins. The dates and even the order of reigns are unknown. In 1030, Sindh was conquered by Mahmud of Ghazni.
