Coinage of the Iranian Huns and their Successors from Bactria to Gandhara (4th to 8th century CE)
Reihe: Denkschriften der philosophisch-historischen Klasse, Band: 471
Format: 2 Bände mit insgesamt 960 Seiten, zahlreiche Abb., 1 Karte, 30,5x21,5 cm, broschiert
The aim of this volume, by providing a commented and most complete view of the entire coinage of the Iranian Huns, is to make coins as a primary historic source accessible to the reader and usable for further research for all historic disciplines. The groundbreaking book by Robert Göbl from 1967 is hereby considerably enhanced and partly revised.
The book contains 10 chapters, the Kidarites, Dinars (of the Kidarite and Alkhan period), Alkhan, Tobazini, the Hephthalites, Sasanian Coinage and Imitations, Nezak Shahs, Alkhan-Nezak Crossover, the Western Turk Period and finally Gandharan Copper. This term is newly introduced and covers a phenomenon which has been labeled “Kashmir Smast” before.
Each chapter discusses the numismatic evidence based on thorough typological analysis and a short historical overview summarizes the written sources. The catalogue is arranged by coin-type but pictures every specimen in the Aman ur Rahman collection. In addition, a fully illustrated typological index is provided.
