Comments
This type was minted from ca. AD705-720. There are several different types for this mint. It seems this is an over-struck on an earlier minted coin (perhaps a Byzantine).
 
Byzantine Jerusalem was conquered by the Arab armies of Umar ibn al-Khattab in 638 CE. Among Muslims of Islam's earliest era it was referred to as Madinat bayt al-Maqdis ("City of the Temple") which was restricted to the Temple Mount. The rest of the city "... was called Iliya, reflecting the Roman name given the city following the destruction of 70 CE: Aelia Capitolina". Later the Temple Mount became known as al-Haram al-Sharif, “The Noble Sanctuary", while the city around it became known as Bayt al-Maqdis.
