293HG1) ARAB-BYZANTINE. Tiberias (?) mint. Circa 680-690 AD. Æ Fals (18 mm, 3.12 gm, 6h). Byzantine style standing emperor, holding long cross and globus cruciger; bird on standard to left / Large M; monogram above, ANO XTII flanking, « -/DAM\ below. Walker 7; SICA 560. VF, glossy brown patina. Rare in this state of preservation.
 
This type is traditionally attributed to Damascus based on the exergual legend. However the obverse motif of the bird perched on a T-shaped standard appears later on signed Umayyad issues of Tiberias (cf. SNAT 302). It is likely that these are issues of Tiberias copying the types of the main Umayyad mint at Damascus.
