The present monograph provides a survey of the Sasanian coin collection in /the Civico Gabinetto Numismatico/ of Milan. The collection consists of sixty-nine silver coins from the Sasanian period, stretching from the beginning of the reign of Ardair I (224-241 CE) to Xusraw II (590/591-628). Included in the collection are also two post-Sasanian coins attributed to the early period of Muslim domination in Iran, suggesting a strong Sasanian influence.
