A fine example of the drachm for this monarch. Notice that the wings of victory which appeared on Khosrau II’s crown are no longer present on Kavad’s crown, who imitates that of his great- grandfather Kavad I. In addition, the phrase “Apzuti” behind the crown on the coins of Khosrau II is replaced by the word “P(i)RUZ” meaning “victor”.
