Quote from: Rangnath on March 16, 2008, 05:23:36 PMA flying lion and a dragon are pretty much the samething, aren't they?
Quote from: Rangnath on March 16, 2008, 09:00:06 PMGood points Peter. The creature on the coin appears to have a wing and doesn't appear to be snake like. The rulers who minted this coin were Hindus. If the creature was indeed a lion, I suppose we must consider this to be a possible reference to Vishnu and Narasimha, an incarnation of Vishnu. richie
