167FF8) ILKHAN MONGOLS OF PERSIA, HULAGU KHAN, 654-663 AH / 1256-1265 AD, AR DIRHAM, CITING HIS NAME, " KA'AN AL'A'ZAM HULAKU ILKHAN ", STRUCK AT MARDIN,  SUPERB XF STRIKE,  TYPE OF ALBUM 2122,  SICA 1371; DIRHEM OF HULAGU WERE STRUCK POSTHUMOUSLY EVEN AFTER HIS DEATH AND AS LATE AS 679 AH AT MARDIN. THIS IS THE SAME HULEGU WHO SACKED BAGHDAD, KILLED MOST OF THE MALE POPULATION AND PUT THE LAST ABBASID CALIPH TO DEATH.

In 1258, the Mongols overran baghdad, seizing the caliph al-Musta'sim, whom they allegedly put to death by rolling him in a carpet and allowing elephants to trample him to death, so as to uphold the Mongol traditionof never spilling royal blood. The details of this story may be apocryphal.
