It is not known who issued these coins, but stylistically they can be dated to the post-Shahi Islamic period in the modern Pakistan. This particular coin was found in a hoard of jitals of the Ghanzaid ruler Ibrahim (1059-1099) and probably dates to the same period (the size and weight are also the same). The brahmi letter Te is probably the initial of the issuing ruler, but it is not known at this point who this person was and the exact location where these were minted is not known as well.
