Horseman left, SRI in Brahmi in the upper right field (off flan) / Modified tamgha (?). 10mm, 0.63 grams. Gobl -; MACW -; Jittals -.The coin was found with a group of Nezak and Achon bronze obols, and the presence of the Tamgha on reverse indicates that the coin is of Hunnic manufacture, and it might have been issued during the times of Khingila, when silver drachms with a somewhat similar obverse were produced. This type is unpublished in all major references, but I've seen one example of this coin offered as Hephthalite.
