Bronze Stater of Kalasa (1063-1089 AD), pre-Islamic Kashmir, India

Enthroned Ardoxsho facing; Nagari legend: "Kalasa Ra-" / King standing, Nagari legend "-Ja Deva". 20mm, 6.3 grams.

Very attractive. These remarkable and attractive coins are the descendants of the gold and silver Kushan staters, and have a distinction of being the longest-minted issue in history - the Goddess/King design remained virtually unchanged in the 1300+ years history of this issue. Raja Kalasa of Kashmir is best known for being a great patron of the arts, especially of music and dance.
