Four punchmarks / Four of bankers' marks. 25x23mm, 4.6 grams. RARE! Rajgor 901.

In ca.525 BC Kashi, the long-time enemy of Kasala, was conquered by it, and was administered as a Kasal province until the conquest of Kasala by Magadha in ca.475 BC. During the earlier part of this period, Kashi issued vishmatikas, and later switched to a karshapana standard, closely adhering to the general layout of the Kasala coins. This coin, as well as a few other we are offering, are from a small hoard of large vishmatikas. They are all rare coins.
