This volume is associated with the research project “Sylloge Nummorum Sysanidorum” carried out by the Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften and the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique. It is a survey of copper coinage minted during the first hundred and fifty years of Arabic domination in regions previously under Sasanian rule. The value of Arab-Sasanian copper coinage lies in the variety of its iconography and in the content of the inscriptions which provide evidence of the political and cultural fermenta- tion in regions previously under Sasanian hegemony after the Arab conquest. The Arab-Sasanian copper coins serve as evidence to the determination of the Iranians to retain signs of their cultural identity and the desire of the Arabs to articulate their Muslim faith in a region where an older cultural and religious ideology remains strong. The available corpus contains approximately 330 coins from of more than a hundred different types can be distinguished.These are described and illustrated in the catalogue, which is supplemented by a synopsis in order to give a clear picture of the iconographic repertoire of these coin issues.
