Coin pendant

Pendant of pseudo Samanid silver coin, minted in 920-940, probably in Kiev or Pskov. On both sides there is a small cross of the Russian-Byzantine type. Otherwise the coin has Islamic decoration. The tentative attribution to the Kievan Rus empire is based primarily on the occurrence of this cross. Part of a hoard find, Vårby, Huddinge Parish, Södermanland.
