Quote from: Figleaf on September 28, 2022, 10:52:25 PMVery nice specimen, shiblius. Clear, sharp details. The flan that is too small is typical and can't be helped. At least there is enough detail left to reconstruct the text.The pompous titles are also normal, though second Alexander (the great) is not typical. For laughs, there is a map of the Khalji territories here. To put it kindly, not exactly as impressive as the empire Alex made. Then again, what about the sultans of the fly-speck Maldive islands proclaiming themselves Sultans of the land and the sea and claiming "the victory and the glory" without a fight?There are also false geographical claims on coins. There's a whole coterie of rulers calling themselves king of Jerusalem who were never even close to the city. English kings called themselves king of France and Swedish kings claimed to be king of the vandals? Coins are propaganda.Peter
