FADLUYID ATABEGS OF SHABANKARA, JALAL-AL-DIN TAYYIBSHAH (c. 662-680h). Dinar, Aydhaj, date off flan. Reverse: In field: citing the Ilkhanid Abaqa as overlord. Weight: 10.71g. Reference: Album G1941 RRR. Struck off-centre and with some weak areas, better than very fine and extremely rare. The Fadluyids were vassals of the Ilkhanids in eastern Fars, and this appears to be the first published Fadluyid dinar to bear a legible mintname. Aydhaj was the Fadluyid capital and was captured by Hulagu in the late 650s. The ruling member of the dynasty, Muzaffar al-Din Muhammad, was killed, but later Fadluyids appear to have been left in place by the Mongols to govern the region on their behalf.
Estimate: GBP 3000 - 4000
