This article presents a coin that was hitherto described incompletely. It shows conclusively that its reverse is not blank, opening the way for more analysis and a better understanding of the series. It provides deep and thorough background, both on literature on the coin and on the area the coin was struck in.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Peter,

I appreciate the nomination, but that post is a verbatim copy of M&W's entry for Gurramkonda.  Hence, it is not my own work.  Figured it was easier to copy than to scan and post.  And besides, a single page should not constitute a violation of copyright laws (hopefully).  That was the reason why I added the book's title before the post, otherwise I would have added a reference at the bottom of the post...
