This is the second of two main series struck as a imitative coinage usually derived from coins of Foca, Heraclius and Constans II. They do not employ a dating system and the officina and date they do have are considered meaning less at this time. Clive Foss from in "Arab -Byzantine coins" reports that a analyses by Pottier and colleagues concluded that they do correspond to a Byzantine standard and the most probable date of them was from 638-643. They are therefore considered some of the first identifiable Arab_Byzantine coins under the governorship of Mu'awiya.
