Superb! Silver punch drachm of Salisuka (ca.215-202 BC), Eran or Vidisa mint (G/H 595), Mauryan Empire
Five punch-mark symbols (see below) / Two small punch-marks. Irregular flat silver planchet, 13.5x15mm, 3.36 grams. Vidisa or Eran mint. Gupta/Hardaker ISPC VII III C 18 (#595); MACW 4251-4257.

Very scarce provincial issue, lacking the sun and the six-armed symbol, common on the normal Mauryan issues. Very rare this nice!

The Mauryan Empire was India's first great unified empire. It lasted from 321 to 185 BCE, and was ruled by the Mauryan dynasty. At its height it ruled virtually all of northern and central India and parts of Afghanistan and Pakistan.
