In his concise history of the Sasanian empire Klaus Schippmann wrote, “Die Münzen sind wohl unter allen Denkmälern der Sasanidenzeit eine der wichtigsten Quellen”. The purpose of this contribution is to offer a numismatic perspective on Sasanian involvement in eastern Arabia, thereby drawing together two important threads in Klaus Schippmann’s distinguished career — his longstanding interest in the Sasanians, and his more recent involvement in the archaeology of the Gulf region.
