Spaniard Posted June 11, 2022 · Supporter Share Posted June 11, 2022 I've been busy emptying coins from my albums and trays to fill and display in my cabinet...Came across this interesting little 12mm coin that I hadn't seen for a while....picked this up from @Finn235 a few years back when a hoard came up on ebay.... Indo-Scythian Satrap (Governor) Rajuvula 10-25 CE Billon DrachmObverse..Bust of king right, crude Greek legend around BASILEPS SPYROS (the affluent or rich)?Reverse..Athena Alkidemos standing left, holding horizontal shield on outstretched left arm, hurling thunderbolt with right hand, monograms at left and right, Kharoshthi legend around: chatrapasa apratihatachakrasa rajuvulasa.(whose laws are unbreakable)? Rajuvula was an Indo-Scythian Satrap (governor) who ruled the area of Mathura in and around the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh from around 10-25 CE. He supposedly invaded Eastern Punjab replacing the last two Indo-Greek kings Strato I and his son Strato II, with his coins copying the Greek design. If anyone has any more info it would be much appreciated. 14 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
