The metrology of the coins. 6. The mode of fabrication. 7. The state in relation to coinage. 8. The coins with symbols. 9. The provenance and coin types. Bibliography. Index. The book deals with the discussion criticism and systematic arrangement of our knowledge of the indigenous system of ancient Indian numismatics upto the 3 cent. AD with special reference to Northern India. It embodies the result of his work on a rather intricate and difficult subject which had not received the amount of attention from scholars which it fully deserves. The study of the evolutionary processes of coinage in ancient India will lead to a new orientation and a comparison between the Indian and foreign processes and their parallel development will establish a bond of uniformity and incidentally point out the necessary differences. 174 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 55102
