In ca.525 BC Kashi, the long-time enemy of Kasala, was conquered by it, and was administered as a Kasala province until the conquest of Kasala by Magadha in ca.475 BC. During the earlier part of this period, Kashi issued vishmatikas (heavy silver coins struck toa 42-mana standard), and later switched to a karshapana standard, closely adhering to the general layout of the Kasala coins. They are all rare coins.
