Arab-Sassanids, Anonymous Ruler, Dirham 30 AH

The rule of the Sassanids stretched over the territories of modern Iran and Iraq and over parts of Syria and Saudi Arabia. In 651, however, the last Sassanid monarch was swept off his throne by his own Arabian vassals. The Arabs adopted the Sassanid coina without major changes; all they did is apply an Arabic legend around the rim.
