i got this coin with seller's detail as follows -
"RHM Mint (Rakhaj) on the right in Pahlavi and year RY 11 (Yazdeh) in Pahlavi on the left"
I couldn't find a match at Numista, so need help to ascertain if the details are correct

The main reference I use has this mint as LAM, for Ram-Hormizd in Khuzistan (http://grifterrec.rasmir.com/sasania/sas_mint/sas_mint_table2.html top of page) but the date is correctly read as 11 (see http://grifterrec.rasmir.com/sasania/sas_mint/dp/sas_date_table.html)

The problem is of course that many of the mint signatures keep on being reattributed, but I have never come across the mint of 'Rakhaj' before.
