Abstract: 
The present paper tries to provide a rough overview over lead coins roughly
dating to the Umayyad period (ca. 700-750 AD). Lead coins can be either issued
alongside copper coins like in Baalbek or Jurjan as part of the regular petty
coinage, they can be a local currency like in the Persian Gulf region, or they can
have been produced in unofficial local workshops as a remedy against a need
for petty cash. Some examples for these three categories are presented and
discussed.
