That is pretty cool @LKS and thx for posting!

I have a Himyarite silver fraction from the previous century that seems to be a bit less cupped and with a less degenerate design. I don't know a ton about these, but mine also comes from the Raidan mint. I hope you don't mind if I add pics of mine to help show the comparison.




I'm pretty sure that both @echizento and @finn have similar coins as well. A family reunion!

Very nice! And probably easier to photograph!

Makes you wonder who started the first true cup coins, certainly not the Byzantines.
