Presentation of the book of “Kulob hoard”

On November 27, 2019, the presentation of the book of “Kulob hoard” (Samanid dirhams) of the Tajik numismatist and epigraphist Sharifzoda Abduvali Qurbonali was presented at the National museum of Tajikistan. This book was published in the State unitary enterprise of the “Sharqi ozod” publishing and printing complex of the Executive office of the President of the Republic of Tajikistan in honor of the 30th anniversary of State independence of the Republic of Tajikistan and the 1120th anniversary of the founding of the Samanids.

The book “Kulob hoard” was written on the basis of a study of a large hoard of coins of Samanids, found in Kulob, which consists of 1405 dirhams and 104 fragments. This hoard is the largest hoard of the Samanid dirhams in Central Asia. The scientific significance of this book is primarily in the fact that it explores a new, previously unexplored hoard, which contains new information about Khatlon's money circulation during the Samanids. Articles were published about the hoard of the Samanid dirhams, but there were no monographic editions. In this hoard, 60 species and 79 variants of dirhams were revealed. Numismatists can apply the presented classification in the study of other hoards and this is a good scientific achievement.

The most important achievement of the author of the book is the discovery of Vakhsh coins in this hoard, which were not known until this time. Another feature of the “Kulob hoard” is that there are 581 coins minted in Khuttal. And in other hoards, the Khuttal Samanid dirhams are no more than 1-2 coins.

The book of “Kulob hoard” also provides interesting information about the political situation of Khuttal. And also, based on coins, it is determined that in 270/883 until 289/901-902 Khuttal was independent and ruled by local rulers. In 293/905-906 Ismail Samani annexed this region to the state of Samanids and this fact is important for the history of Khatlon and Samanids. In addition, for the first time a complete catalog of this hoard was compiled and added to the text of the book.
