Satavahana Silver Drachm of Vasithiputa Shri Pulumavi
« on: January 14, 2016, 05:12:23 PM »
This is a Satavahana Silver Drachm recently acquired by me. The dealer attributed it to Vasisthiputra Satakarni. With my limited Brahmi knowledge I think I can read GoTaMiPuTaSa on obverse side with RHS of Ta and LHS of Mi coinciding but I am not sure. Anthony, please help.

Hi Anjan,

Not much time this week, so not an instant reaction from me yesterday.
I think the two letters which are partially visible before PuTaSa are most likely SiThi , with above this just the edge of Va.
So i think the seller was right in this case. Compare with this one from Mitresh' collection.
