Description

Infidels who routed him-the Queen whose treasury was
enriched by 400,000 French livres.
In No. 470 (Plate VI.) we have another coin struck
during the virtual reign of Shejer-ed-durr, but after she
had invested Eybek with the name of Sultan. The coin is
struck from an old die ofEs-Salih Ayyoob, Shejer-ed-durr’s
former husband and master, but the name Eybek is inserted
at the bottom of the reverse area, and, by reason of double
striking, also occurs, inverted, at the top of the obverse
area. This is the only coin bearing the name of Eybek with
which I am acquainted, except a copper coin published by
Frederic Soret."‘
After these two remarkable deenars, the rest of the
Memlook coins call for little notice, since they seldom offer
anything very unusual in their inscriptions, and are struck
at the ordinary mint places. The collection, however, is
exceedingly rich in this long, if not interesting, series, pos-
sessing no fewer than 235 coins of the two dynasties, whose
rule extended to about 260 years. At first sight it will
appear that the collection is deficient in the coinage
of a good many of the kings: but a closer examina-
tion will show that these kings’ reigns were always very
short, often lasting only a few months ; and so the actual
deficiency is less than it seems. Of the twenty-five Sultans
of the Bahree Dynasty, the British Museum possesses
coins of all but six, and the collective reigns of these
six covered barely five years. Of the twenty-four Burjee
Sultans the collection has coins of only eleven: but the
reigns of these eleven filled up about one hundred and
twenty out of the total of one hundred and thirty years,
thus leaving only ten years for the remaining thirteen Sul-
tans’ reigns put together.

Rajasthan, Delhi and Agra are the jewels in India's crown. From fairy-tale palaces and epic forts to dizzying festivals and wildlife encounters, this is India at its unbeatable Bollywood best.
