Ancient Orissa, Puri Kushan, Uninscribed Cast Copper, 3.93g, Imitating Kushan Proto types, Obv: Human figure with both hands hanging down, crescent to right, Rev: Human figure with one hand raised, crescent to right. Very fine.
The coinage of ancient coastal Orissa almost entirely comprised of these cast issues, which were labelled ‘Puri Kushan’ coins by Alexander Cunningham because he obtained them from the holy city of Puri, near Cuttack. Although having crude motifs, the coins are neatly manufactured with good technical knowledge.
