King kneeling right, drawing bow / Outline of a stylized lion (with a raised tail) walking left. 13mm, 0.89 grams. Unpublished, not in Nasir Khan. 

Fascinating little coin, discovered in a small hoard of Hunnic bronze obols from Kashmir Smast. The obverse seem to imitate the old sigloi minted almost a 1000 years earlier, the reverse is of interesting style. The coin is quite a mystery, with nothing similar published, as far as I can tell.
