The Sasanian tradition of mostly right-facing obverse portraits and reverse image of a central fire with flanking attendants was used for about 400 years. The pattern became so ingrained in the cultures of the Persian region and their trading neighbors that upon the establishment of Islamic rule, coins continued to be designed in a similar way. This occurred both within the new Islamic empire (until the coinage reform of 'Abd al-Malik I), and in surrounding lands, for hundreds of years. This category shows the known Sasanian coins and their imitations listed on CoinFacts Wiki.
