Billah yathiqu / 'Ali wa bihi / yantasir (œIn God trusts 'Ali and through him is victorious�) // Lillah / Muhammad / rasul / Allah / 'Ali (œIn God, Muhammad is the messenger of God, ˜Ali�). 10mm, 0.57 grams. G/G #AS15; Fishman/Todd (2018) #HS12.
Ali was the son of ˜Umar II, as mentioned by Mas™udi, and ˜Umar™s successor. Ali™s reign must have lasted for a long time, as we see much stylistic change in his coins: the early pieces are large and well-made, with small neat lettering engraved in thin lines; while the (presumably) latest coins are smaller and relatively crudely engraved.
