Denomination : Bronze Dirhem.

Date & Mint : No mint mark, AH 568 (AD 1172 to 1173).

Reference : SS type 60.4 .

Size : 28.4 x 29.4 mm  Weight : 10.81 grams.

Grade : VF with a mid-brown patination.

Obverse : Male head with two Nikes flying above, with an Arabic date that reads AH 568 around.

Reverse : Arabic inscription naming Ghazi Ibn Mawdud Ibn Zangi.

While the inscription names a previous Emperor, the AH 568 date clearly shows this is an issue of Sayf al din Ghazi ibn Mawdud.  This is apparently not an unusual practice by this Dynasty.
