Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of names of persons, and terms and concepts relevant to discussion of material evidence that provides a handful of additional guidelines to observe in the course of studying Islamic-era numismatic material. The account related in the writings of al-Maqrīzī is extremely important for students of the history of Muslim numismatics, as it highlights ʿAbd alMalik's real innovation - the inclusion for the first time of Qurʾānic verses on Muslim coinage.

Keywords: ʿAbd alMalik; Muslim coinage
