History of the Traikutakas: Based on Coins and Inscriptions

Rajgor . (Author)
Synopsis The monograph, History of the Traikutakas deals with the history of the Traikutaka dynasty based on their coins and inscriptions. The Traikutakas are known to have reigned in western India in the third-fourth centuries after Christ. The present endeavour is an attempt to revisit the waxing problem of dating the dynasty on the political map of India. On the basis of some newly discovered numismatic evidences, it is held that the dates inscribed on the inscriptions and coins of the Traikutakas should be reckoned in the Saka era of AD 78 and not in the Kalachuri-Chedi era of AD 248-49. This ante-dates the whole dynasty by about one hundred seventy years. The book compiles entire numismatic and epigraphical data and uses them to rebuild the history of the Traikutakas of western India.
