Hakims of Tashkand - Sultan Khoja Ishan, AE-Pul AH1220
« on: August 03, 2020, 10:37:29 PM »
Hi,
I found this coin on zeno, which looks exactly the same type as mine: https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=98906
It is catalogued under "Hakims of Tashkand, Sultan Khoja Ishan, 1215-1223" but the year on my coin looks very much like AH1228 and according to zeno the town has been seized by Khoqand on AH1223.
So should it be Khoqand, ruler Umar, (AH1224-1237)?
Size: 16mm
Weight: 4.55gr

Indeed the same coin; may be that the last digit "8" of your coin is simply off on the Zeno one ? it seems that on your coin there is too a dot after "122" which has been read on Zeno as 1220 , which could be well 1228  for both examplars???

The reverse (lower picture) reads : "1228  ' 'aqibat khair bad  عاقبت خیر باد   " which is a well known persian verse which means : "May the end be prosperous"

Thank you Saro,
So that means that the coin cannot be Tashkand, as that ended in AH1223 which means again that it is not correctly attributed in zeno.
The "dot" after the second 2 on my coins by the way is only a flaw in the patina and not in the coin.

I finally put it on zeno.
Here is the reply from Stephen Album:
The date is 1220, with the additional number "8" added to the lower right of the obverse, just as the illustrated piece dated 1220 with the extra "8" illustrated by Nastich & Schuster (#NS-T05, different dies but identical style and arrangement, including the numerals on the reverse).
So it should well be Tashkand.
