Portrait of ruler facing right / Bukharan tamgha arranged as a fire altar, Sogdian legend around: "xwδsbr" ("Ruler Asbar?"). 20mm, 1.82 g. MAC 3354+; Cf. Zeno #140488. 

Rare. Probably one of the earlier Bukharan Kings. Different readings of the reverse exist - the coins are mostly poorly preserved and the legend is difficult to reconstruct and read.
