Abbasid Caliphate, temp. Al Mahdi المهدي . AR Dirhem (22mm, 2.78 g, 5h). Madinat al-Salam مدينة السلام (Baghdad) mint. Dated AH 149. VF+
Al-Mahdi was born in 744 or 745 AD in the village of Hamimah. His mother was called Arwi, and his father was al-Mansur. When al-Mahdi was ten years old, his father became the second Abbasid Caliph. When al-Mahdi was young, his father, the Caliph al-Mansur, needed to establish al-Mahdi as a powerful figure in his own right. So, on the east bank of the Tigris, al-Mansur oversaw the construction of East Baghdad, with a mosque and royal palace at its heart. Construction in the area was also heavily financed by the Barmakids, and the area became known as Rusafa
