Elephant advancing right, legend in Brahmi "Rano siri Satakanisa" (only partially seen) / Ujjain symbol, pellet in each segment. 21mm, 3.4 grams. Very nice for these. Mitchiner ACW 4941-4952.These coins were issued by the various Satavahana kings in Northern Deccan in the name of their family only - without mentioning the name of the King. A lot of coins attributed to this type might be of the later Satakarnis type, with a name of the King, which is simply struck off flan.
