Civic copper / lion & palm branch, dated (1)081 AH, mint ?
« on: December 23, 2020, 02:26:04 PM »
23mm / 8,56g
It isn't ot really an uncirculated coin...only "falus" and the date (1)081 are legible.
The lion (without the sun) with a palm branch over its back could help for identification of the mint, but I don't succeed to find this type  :-\
(Erivan may be ?) the dot over the "sin" of "falus" is puzzling and the floral ornament which cuts this letter is not of great help...

Palm branch, or just the tail of the lion ?

this one on Zeno;

Is similar to Valentine p103 -15, both Iravan - and both similar to the piece above.

Thank you Andyg, Erivan is likely the good guess.
The Zeno coin (dated 1082, the year after) is indeed very close to this one; however, I think that there is no sun on my coin, just a palm branch... a variety to add to others....

yes I spotted the sun vs palm branch - There are so few civic coppers from Iran with those dates on though,  no more on Zeno that I could find at least.
