SASANIAN KINGS. Bahram V, 420-438. Dinar (Electrum, 17 mm, 6.95 g, 4 h), Sind, issued by local governors of Bahram V, the King of Kings.

SNS III, -. Apparently unpublished and of great interest. Light scratches, otherwise, very fine.


From a collection of coins from Central Asia.

This dinar was issued by local Sasanian governors in Sind, which formed the easternmost extent of Sassanian dominion in the Indian subcontinent. What makes this example particularly interesting is the flower Bahram is holding in his right hand, a hitherto unknown feature on the Sasanian coinage from Sind.
