How about you consider Laknau? Just a wild thought I am not up to that yet with my new learning.

No doubt, this dam is from Dogaon.
The date on reverse is nearly complete : "fi sanah nuhsad wa hashtad wa do" (from bottom to up).
The epithet isn't clear but according to this date, it should be "dar al-Khalifat" and not "dar al-salam"
