I just put these pictures underneath to allow comparison (Read the text under the picture):
In the neighbourhood, no ;) ?

The line of Beg-Tegin (or Begtegin) was founded by a Turcoman prince named Zayn A--Din 'Ali, who entered the service of the Zangids in 539 AH/ 1144 AD. However it was only during the reign of Muzaffar Al-Din Kukburi (586-630 AH / 1190-1232 AD) , who received the apanage of Irbil from Salah al-Din (Saladin) that the family excercised any real autonomy. Kukburi bequeathed his possessions to the Abbasid caliphate and Caliphal coins are known struck at Irbil after 630 AH.
