OVERVIEW OF ARAB-SASANIAN COINAGE: IN THE EARLY YEARS OF THE ISLAMIC EMPIRE EXPANSION TO THE EAST, AND BEFORE THE MONETARY REFORM OF ABDEL MALEK, THE ARABS ADOPTED THE EXISTING SASANIAN COINAGE IN THE EASTERN PROVINCES. THE NAME OF THE GOVERNOR REPLACED THE SASANIAN KING'S NAME AND EXCLAMATIONS SUCH AS ' BISMILLAH ' (IN THE NAME OF GOD), OR ' LILLAH AL HAMD ' (THANKS TO GOD), OR ' RABBY ' ( MY GOD) WERE ADDED TO THE OBVERSE MARGIN. THE MINT AND DATE OCCURS ON THE REVERSE AS IN THE SASANIAN SERIES. THE BEST REFERENCE COVERING THIS SERIES IS JOHN WALKER'S ' A CATALOG OF THE ARAB SASANIAN COINS '
