CommentsAbu al-`Abbās `Abdu'llāh ibn Muhammad as-Saffāḥ, or Abul `Abbas
al-Saffaḥ was the first caliph of the Abbasid caliphate, one of the
longest and most important caliphates in Islamic history.
LikeUmayyad
coins, al-Saffah's coins lack the reference to his name. This is a typical
example of the coinage belonging to the first Abbasid ruler.
