Ancient Persia, Sassanian Empire, Khusro II, AR Drachm



Ancient Persia, Sassanian Empire, Khusro II, AR Drachm

Period: 590-628 AD

The Kh is also sometimes spelled as X or Ch, so you may see Khusro, Xusro or Chosroes. The sacred fire, depicted on the reverse of the coin was symbolic for the Zoroastrianism religion of the Sasanians.

Obverse: Bust of Khusro II right, wearing winged crown surmounted by star and crescent, inside double dotted-border, crescent with star at 3, 6 and 9 o'clock with text on the right of portrait 'hwslwb', or Khusro.
Reverse: Two guards flanking a flaming altar, crescents on their heads, inside triple dotted border, crescent with star at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o'clock.
