  This finding demonstrates that al-Andalus was one of the main commercial and strategic center of the Middle Ages.

  As the Fund “Archeology” reports, today the collection of coins is in the Archaeological Museum of Seville. It is important to note that in the years 700-715 eastern Iran and Maverannahr, Amudarya and Syrdarya were captured by Omeyad army.
