    I don't have the answer. Might be Bactrian too or from that area. However, coin was struck without a collar. That usually means it's not modern. Try posing your question on the ancients forum.

    And welcome to CoinTalk.

    Welcome to CT. You should ask the mods to move this to the Ancients forum. You will get an answer from them.

    I'd gladly move the post to Ancients but I have no idea if the coin IS an ancient - sure doesn't look like to me. Looks like a much more modern coin. So for the time being I'm just gonna leave it here.

    If and when someone who actually knows, will let me know, then I'll move it.

    Based upon similar identified coins I own, IMO this is no earlier than a 16th or 17th century coin. It would literally take me hours to identify this coin at my level of expertise. Hopefully, someone will chime in with expertise in Arabic coins.
