Another interesting aquisition. Raises some questions. How did you get to the Saurashtra attribution ? What era is it from ?The Trisul shape also reminds me of some far later princely state coinage. What's the size and weight ?

To give your fish some company here an Ujjain copper, ca 200BC,
Obv: Turtle surrounded by fishes. Rev: Ujjain symbol.
8x9 mm, 0.77 gr, ref: Pieper 377.
