The Silver Coinage of the Western Satraps in India, 50-400 Ad: Catalogue and Rarity Guide: 1 (The Coinage of the Western Satraps in India (50-400 Ad))

Synopsis

This 392 page book is the most comprehensive study of the rich silver coinage of the Western Satraps ever written. The Western Satraps (also known as Indo-Sakas or Indo-Scythians) of Gujarat and the surrounding areas in Western India issued a plethora of beautiful rich coinage which until now has not been well understood outside of a small circle of specialists. This is the perfect guide for the new or experienced collector.

 

The coins of the Western Satraps (also known as the “Western Kshatrapas”) were issued for over three centuries (from the 1st century AD to the early 5th century AD) and covered thirty eight rulers from two distinct dynasties (Kshaharatas and Kardamakas).
