Kashmir Hindu Kings coin - Parva Gupta or Partha Varman?
« on: February 14, 2019, 01:12:37 PM »
Please identify this Kashmir coin issued by Hindu King. The letter visible looks like 'Pa' with a slight distortion above it. Possibility for both Partha Varma and Parva Gupta.

Can the experts here clarify?

For ParvaGupta i would expect to see the "Gu" to the right of the standing king. As the character visible here does not resemble a Gu, i'd vote by exclusion for your other option.

On second thought; it likely is neither of your two options. Sughanda Rani would be a possibility.
