Looks like a text and horseman type to me. Can't find 1236, but did find what looks like 1193 left below. Can you guide my eye?

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

These are undated Jitals of Badaun mint (extremely crude). What looks like 1193 is actually part of Rulers title al-dunya wa al-din. I wrote CE 1236 as the ruler only ruled for few months so the year is certain. The other side is Horseman indeed.

I ll try to illustrate later.
