The Pāratarājas are a little known dynasty who ruled in what is now the Pakistani province of Balochistan, probably during the second and third centuries. Their coins are inscribed in Brahmi and/or Kharoshti and all show a swastika, probably their dynastic symbol. Much research into this series was done by Dr. Tandon in the earlier 2000's.
