No Yamini Dirhams are listed by Album for Arslan.  Album only lists a jital of Lahore with a bull on the obverse, which is scare.  But at the same time, Tye does list Yamini dirhams for Arslan.  Which one is correct?

According to Dr. Florian Schwarz, Yamini Dirhams of Arslan have been published in Sylloge Numorum Arabicorum Tuebingen, Vol. XIV d (Hurasan IV) : Gazna/Kabul, and by Thomas in 1848.  Thomas' collection was donated to the British Museum and these may be the coins that Mr. Tye refers to in his book on jitals.
