Need help to find what are these?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Very recently I have collected these from an old man. Could anyone tell me what are these?

 

Thanks in advance.

It has a Sasanian king, and a sacred fire altar and attendants reverse, not my area, but this link is a start

I have never seen a square one, so I am not sure if it is a genuine coin.

 

Another great link for Sasanian silver coins

This is one I have owned for many years, in poor condition.
