This catalog and identification guide for the square Islamic coins of Spain, Portugal, and North Africa has four hundred entries organized by issuing dynasty, from the Muwahhid (starting 524 a.h./1130 a.d.) through Nasrid, Hudid, Hafsid, Marinid, Wattasid, Sa'dian Sharifs, and ending with the Ottomans (last square coin in 1232 a.h./1816 a.d.). While most coins were struck in silver, the few square gold and bronze coins, including the round to octagonal bronze Nasrid fals, are included. A brief history of millares, the Christian imitations of the Muwahhid dirham, is given along with some illustrations. Each coin entry is accompanied with the legends written in Arabic and English, sizes, masses, and references. Hundreds of simple line drawings illustrate many of the coin entries. Tables include thumbnail sketches, legends, rulers, dates on coins, correlations with Vives, Hazard, and Medina numbers, mint names, a map, and bibliography.
