State symbolism on early Islamic coins
« on: October 14, 2019, 11:43:02 AM »
If you have early Islamic coins in your collection, you will be very interested in this paper:

Symbolism and the State Authority: Reflections from the Art on the Indo-Islamic Coins by Ejaz Hussain.

At 39 pages, it may look a bit daunting to busy people. However, you can start your first reading of the paper on page 24. There is a wealth of excellent information in the paper that will help you understand the coins of non-Indian Islamic entities (e.g. later Ilkhan and Mamluk) as well.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
