This appears to be a Sassanian AR Drachm. It weighs 3.24g and is approx. 26mm in diameter. Any identification help would be greatly appreciated. If possible, directions to a relevant catalogue or catalogue # would be most appreciated.

Thank you for the ruler identification! Is it possible to identify and more information like the mint or regnal year so I can find the catalog number?
