ARAB-SASANIAN, AL-HAKAM B. ABI AL-‘AS. Drachm, GRM (possibly Garmshir in Kirman) 56h. Obverse: In second quadrant of margin: Allah rabb al-hukm. Weight: 2.66g. Reference: Malek 589, same reverse die. Evenly clipped, very fine and very rare. The unusual legend in the obverse margin, meaning ‘Allah is Lord of the Judgement,’ may indicate that al-Hakam was in fact a Kharijite. The mint-signature is interpreted by Malek as an abbreviation for Garmshir, an area in southern Kirman meaning ‘warm district.’ GRM is also found as one of several suffixes to the common KRMAN mint-signature.

Estimate: GBP 700 - 1000
