Another little gem from a recent cheap lot identified on zeno:

 Ayyubid, 564-fl. 866  Main line Sultans in Cairo » al-Nasir Salah al-Din Yusuf I (Saladin), 564-589 » AE fals, as sole ruler » Dimashq

Comments by Newcoins:-

L - Yousef Ayoub
يوسف أيوب
R - al-Malik al Nasir
الملك الناصر
Ayyubid AE fals, al-Nasir Yusuf I, The text in the center and decorative elements similar to Nicol #B149 (no image, Damascus 581/2 or 4, fals)
SNAT Damaskus #544 (dies exemplar Nicol/Balog B149, 571 or 574?)
But in SNAT it is clearly read in one line يوسف بن أيوب
On this coin, I do not see the word bin

Another coin i am not familiar with. May many more follow !
There might be a trace of "bin" between the name and the fleur de lis at the bottom ?

Yes, it's been noted on zeno that bin is below the name, it's clearer in my hand
