  • Jāmāsp i. REIGN

  • Jāmāsp ii. Coinage

    NIKOLAUS SCHINDEL

    No gold coins are attested so far for Jāmāsp. Apart from the silver drachms, sixths of a drachm, or obols, are known from the mints DA and LD. All the DA specimens are dated to regnal year one, and perhaps are connected with the king’s coronation, which thus may have taken place in Dārābḡerd.
