Interesting find !
The bust is the common Khusru II type. What is special is the very long text in the margin.
This does not look like the mainsteam-Sasanian drachms. The text is also not in Arab, so not typically Arab-Sasanian either.
Can not give you a definite attribution at this point though.

It cost me some time, but i think i finally found it.
this are silver drachms from Zabulistan, modelled after the khusro II type, under the reign of Martan Shah Spur.
