NOTE ABOUT THIS MINT
: THE EXACT LOCATION OF THIS MINT IS NOT KNOWN; MOST REFERENCES REFER TO IT AS " AL-SAMIAH " BUT COULD WELL BE " SH " SINCE KUFIC SCRIPT OMITS THE POINTS. IT COULD WELL BE A MILITARY MINT MOVING WITH THE FORCES SENT FROM BILAD AL-SHAM TO CRUSH THE ABBASSID REVOLUTIONARY FORCES FURTHER TO THE EAST ?
