Great quality, Manzikert, especially for a civic copper. The subject reminds me of the coins of an Indian princely state, though IIRC, their sunfaces were drop-shaped.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Very beautiful civic copper!
 the mintname is cut and looks very like "Tabriz" but is in fact "Erivan"  : " ایروان  "

Thank you very much for the correction, saro.

The Valentine reference should be No. 6, p.101 though. There is a rather poor specimen on Zeno (145803), but no trace in SICA. Krause has an 1139 with a rather sad face, but still no trace of 1130.

Yes the prices for these coins seem to rise quickly.
I am happy to have found some at a still reasonable price.
