Three figures standing facing (Emepror and his two Princes) / Large M surrounded by degraded inscriptions. 24mmx15mm, 3.76 grams.These coins are the earliest coins of the first Islamic Caliphate - after conquering the Byzantine Middle East, they issued coins in the corrupted style of Byzantine folli (especially of Constans II). These circulates for about a few decades, until the end of the 7th century. This is a nice crude and interesting piece.
