Hi Wulhar.....Wow you-ve got yourself 3 very rare coins there! Congrats..

1st coins looks to be a match to this coin on zeno...Paramanuka (1155-65 AD)

2nd coin looks to be a match to an unknown ruler....

3rd I'm not sure at the moment....

Sorry I'm rushing this as at the moment I'm running all day skype classes for the students..
Give me a bit of time and I'll see what I can dig up maybe tonight......

Very interesting though, thanks for sharing.....Paul

Actually, this coin has been wrongly attributed to Paramanak on Zeno as well. There is an akshara on the far left lower field- 'Ti'. Might read as Parmanati. Many collectors have ignored this letter and proceeded to call it Paramanak. At least, that what I have seen.

Hi Wulhar.....This weekend will have a chance to work through these properly..
Any chance you could post closer more in focus photos?....

Your stating Parmanati.....Which rulers do you think these coins are from?

I will certainly be able to throw some different ideas into the melting pot that we could maybe work together on and try to come up with something...What do you think?....It will be quite interesting..Paul

Thanks Paul. I look forward to sharing more coins that I came across. There are many rulers with only one character and these coins are difficult to attribute to any one particular ruler.

I have shared this image where you have very beautifully illustrated the obverse die. Could you kindly share which web tools did you use to do this? It looks very difficult to draw with a mouse pad. Did you use a stylus or something?

Thanks in advance.

@palouche, I hope you don't mind me adding a recent pick-up of mine (Bhima Gupta) to your thread. It's only my second coin of Kashmir, but I've been finding some inspiration from some of your work here and @drnsreedhar's thread:

@Spence...Nice looking Bhima coin good obverse detail showing the 'Gu'..Thanks for sharing.

I just use 'paint' and zoom up big it makes it easier...

@Wular....The 3 coins you've shown are really nice!..And very rare!
I'm sorry I can't pinpoint the names of these rulers but saying that neither can 'anyone else'!
Couple of thoughts...
1.Usually the legends on each side of Lakshmi are read together like the legend variants of Jayasimha see
(page 4 of this thread). This would make your coin read 'Sri Pati' Rama deva...or Raja deva...Both known rulers.......I'm just throwing ideas around here..If its read left to right and the symbol after the Sri is a 'Va' which is also a possibility...Could read 'Sri Vartti Deva' another known ruler...


Below is a link that you'll find interesting and helpful....It gives the readings of a lot of coins..
It mentions the 'double Sri' coin and the above coin although it doesn't state a ruler...
https://archive.org/details/numisma.../12/mode/2up

Hope this helps and gives you a few ideas which I'd like to hear...Paul
