Alright, so the esteemed @ArmoryBazaar posted some pictures of coins found in Idlib - Syria. I would like to make a thread out of this, for future coins. I will post my take on these coins, but I'm very much interested in other opinions.
The two small copper coins (picture 2 & 3) are in my opinion #Umayyad copper fals. The inscription features Islamic texts, most definitely the Islamic shahada. That indicates they're from the later Umayyad period. I would say 8th century.
It's really possible that the last coin is much older that the other coins. It still features a cross and human imagery, indicating Byzantine influences. This kind of coins were used in early Umayyad times, when the caliphs still imitated #Byzantine en #Persian coinage.

Het #Marrakesh-pact (draadje).

Op 10 december wil Harbers namens Nederland het dramatische Marrakesh-pact namens Nederland ondertekenen. Er is al veel over geschreven, maar wat staat er nou eigenlijk letterlijk in dat pact?

In dit draadje de opvallendste teksten! #NotMyPact šŸš«
Artikel 8.

''Migratie is een bron van welvaart, innovatie en duurzame ontwikkeling. Deze positieve effecten kunnen worden geoptimaliseerd door migratiebeheer te verbeteren.'' 1/12
Artikel 13.

''Dit pact erkent dat veilige, ordentelijke en reguliere migratie voor iedereen goed is wanneer het vindt plaatsvindt op een goed geĆÆnformeerde, geplande en consensuele manier.'' 2/12

The first trip abroad that I paid for, was to #Malaysia and #Singapore. I've never understood the average Nigerian's obsession with "Jand" and "Yankee". So, as soon as I could afford to travel abroad, I chose somewhere exotic. #Travel #TravelBae
When I was growing up, I had a strong image of who I wanted to be in life. I wanted to be exposed and have distinct encounters. I wanted to explore unusual things and meet unusual people. #TravelBae
#Singapore & #Malaysia did that for me. I met people I wouldn't ordinarily connect with and listened to them talk about their society and daily lives. I returned from the trip knowing there was a world bigger than #Nigeria. There were people with national problems too. #TravelBae
