I think this one is from Bijapur and should be moved to Indian subcontinent!

Alexander,
  Even if this Larin is a Maldivian one,the topic would still belong in the Indian subcontinent & South Asian section.

I know! It is not from Saudi-Arabia!

The inscription on the larin is not of Bijapur type, but more like the Persian (Safavid) type. As only a limited part of the die is visible these larins are hard to be atributed to a particular ruler or place

1st an apology I suspect this may be a Larin from Ceylon however I couldn't work out where to post my question and I assume the subject matter experts would be in this part of the Board

I have just added a Fishhook style larin to my collection. Despite trying to use Plant I have had difficulty identifying it. Being Fishhook shaped doesn't help nor the fact that I do not think the script is complete ( The die was probably larger than the area struck).  Here is a photo of the "outside script"  I would greatly appreciate identification and an indication of era.

Thanks all

I managed to get a shot of the "inside" script"

Thanks Numismatica: Perhaps some kind moderater can relocate my question to that thread.

I managed to work out the inside text ( second Picture)   "Allah & Ali"  So it is clear this Larin was produced in a Shia  State/City.

Thanks Afrasi.
You may well be correct.  Until someone offers a definitive attribtuion, with all due respect, I'll continue to post this subject here.

I hardly ever look at these pages, but now found this larin coin. The present larin is not of Bijapur, but probably of Parsia as it has the Kalima on one side (a feature not found on the Bijapur larins).
