Coin pendant

Pendant from a gilded Islamic silver coin minted in 937/8 in Shiraz (in modern-day Iran) for the Buyid amir Imad al-Dawla (934-949). The coin is the most recent in the hoard and thus it marks the earliest possible time when the deposit was made, a concept known as 'terminus post quem'. Part of a hoard find, Vårby, Huddinge Parish, Södermanland.
