The city state of Kurara most probably was located near the present day town of Kurwai on the river Betwa. During the post- Mauryan times it issued an extensive coinage. The earliest of these coins, like this one, do not show any dynastic affiliation and were purely city-state issues. Later issues adopt symbolism to suggest that the city had aligned itself first with the local rulers of Vidisha and then with the Satavahanas.
