Rajgor -, "The Coins of the Indian Sultanates" B37.

This rare type was struck after the expedition of Iltutmish in 620-621 to Bengal to quell the rebellion of Iwaz. Iwaz submitted, and struck a series of tankas (in 622 AH) in the name of Iltutmish (5 different types, 4 of which (including this coin) are exceedingly rare). This submission was very short-lived, since his rebellion resumed shortly after Iltutmish left for Delhi.
