Copper Drachm of Parataraja Koziya
« on: March 22, 2016, 07:12:54 AM »
This is a copper drachm of Parataraja Koziya (230 - 270 AD) s/o Paratararaja Kozana. The bust of king is clean-shaven. According to Dr. Tandon (The Coins of the Paratarajas - A Synthesis) , this is an early issue. This is similar to coin #51 in afore-mentioned monograph.

Obv: Crowned bust Left with ear flap
Rev: Swastika Right, Kharosthi legend around: @12h: Koziyasa Kozanaputrasa Pāratarājasa

Diameter = 14 mm, Weight = 1.89 gm.

I have also tried to make an overlay of the legend.
