Abstract: There is practically nothing in the historical sources about his having shown an interest in minting bronze coins. (WALKER 1956: p. xxv) There has been some discussion about the issuing authority and chronology of the bronze coinage of Mu‘$wiya’s forty years as governor and caliph. The first bronze issues of urban mints have a terminus ante quem in the last years of his governorship, that is, in the 650s CE, to judge from an apparent hoard edited by Phillips and Goodman. (PHILLIPS-GOODMAN 1997) The earliest forms of this coinage have been called Type I, Pseudo- Byzantine or ‘imitative’ issues, which Tony Goodwin has divided into nine distinct series, Types A-I (GOODWIN 2005: pp. 16-17) An important series of these, Type B, imitations – often crudely – the obverse of Herakeios’ coins of Cyprus bearing the triple imperial image of Herakleios, Herakleios Constantine and Martina (HAHN 1981: 198a-b. FOSS 2008, nos. 3-4. ALBUM-GOODWIN 2002: nos. 505-506. GOODWIN 2005: no. 2). A more extensive series, Goodwin’s Types I D-F, bears the obverse image of emperor Constans II copied from the standard bronze coinage of the mint of Constantinople in first eight years of his reign.
