The case of a dinar minted in 2 71 AH recording the name of the heir of the Caliph
al-Mu'tamid ‘alà Allah (256-279 AH), al-Mufawwad Uà Allah (256-278 H),
and an enigmatic mint place is discussed in the paper. The Author attempts to
offer a new reading of the toponym of the mint using literary sources. The love-
story between al-Mu ‘tamid and a Bedouin girl, seems to unveil the identity of
the mysterious mint.
