The 3rd Assemani Symposium was dedicated to the transitional period
of Islamic coinage, aiming at putting in context the Umayyad numismatic
materials. The bulk of the papers published in these Proceedings is therefore
focused on this theme, but the contributions also take into account
Arab-Sasanian and Arab-Byzantine issues, as well as early Umayyad coins
from various regions of the Dār al-Islām (Transoxiana, Sogdiana, Libya,…).
Other papers throw light on different periods and objects of Numismatic
interest (seals, glass stamps, history of collecting), as the vocation of this
Symposium is to be the occasion of a wide-range scientific exchange on Arabic and Islamic Numismatics.
Bruno Callegher: His scientific interests can be defined with in two major
research ambits, one relating to Roman coin finds in North-Eastern Italy,
the other regarding Byzantine coinage. He has been Keeper at the ‘Museo
Bottacin’ in Padua and since 2006 associate professor of Numismatics
at the University of Trieste.
Researcher of Arabic Language and Literature at the
Institute of Oriental Studies, Sapienza – University of Rome. Her domains
of research are Islamic Numismatics and Arabic manuscripts.

several principalities, some of them still acknowledged the Saljuq sultan as
overlord. Many of you know the Artuqids and Zangids in the Saljuq West.
Other principalities emerged in the eastern part of the empire, where the
Sultan Sanjar was nominally the supreme overlord. The topic of this study is: how does the title (laqab) of Ai-Aba Malik Muluk
al-Umara"’ which was on his gold dinars in Nishapur in 560 AH fits into his
political position of this time.
