Jital in name of Caliph al Mustansir. Tye 389.
Above the bull "MoMiNa". In front of the horse "Sri" | "ShaLiPha". It is common for these to show only short legend framents. It was thought these were rare, i think many are simply not easily attributed.
Generally attributed to the reign of Iltutmish. I personally think this was minted during the reign of Razziya Sultan.

Interesting, the second next to the first one! Same attribution to Caliph Mustansir, but different layout of text on the bull side with a different form of the final "Na". I can not really make out the "Shalipha" part on the horseman side on the first one.

I glued the topics together !
Here one similar to the second one, but with other parts of the legends better visible.
Also has remnants of old silvering.

After cleaning its clear the the script around Horseman is "Shalipha" with some part of "Pa" is only visible.
