Islamic Coins, Buwayhid, Baha al-dawla (in Fars 388-403h), silver dirham, Siraf 390h, wt. 5.11gms. (Treadwell -), very fine, extremely rare
This is the latest clearly dated dirham from the famous port town of Siraf in Fars, which would indicate that there was a brief revival in its fortunes after a catastrophic earthquake which put an end to its prosperity and contributed directly to the commercial success of Sohar on the coast of Oman.
