Kaushambi, Sarpa Mitra
« on: September 15, 2018, 05:25:03 PM »
Hi,
The only online reference I found for this type of coin is here. These are also described in Peeper AICR # 989.
However this one is of very low weight yet the flan width is 18 mm resulting it to be very thin.
Obv: Bull to right, Ujjain symbol on top
Rev: Railed tree. The three Brahmi characters below should be Ma ta Sa
Thanks,
Saikat

Interesting find ! And as was suggested in the other thread the Brahmi characters clearly shows the "Mi Ta Sa" part of the legend.
