Kshatrapa dynasty, Rudradaman I (c. 130-150 AD), AR Drachm. The obverse has a blundered Greek legend. The Brahmi legend on the reverse reads Rajno Kshatrapasa Jayadamasa Putrasa Rajno Mahakshatrapasa Rudramasa (King Viceroy Jayadaman's Son, King Great Viceroy Rudrasena). Here is a rough diagram showing the reading of the reverse legend:
