About this Item: Sundeep Prakashan, 2005. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. This book presents an account of the early Indian coins found from Sugh, the ancient S )S_ rughna, an extensive and very important archaeological site of Haryana located about 5 km east of Jagadhari/Yamunanagar on the old bed of the river Yamuna where it debouched into the plains from the Shiwalki hills of the Himalayas. Naturally protected on three sides by a bend of the river it occupied a very strategic position on the ancient trade route connecting the Ganga valley with the western world. Silver coins struck on the half karshapana (16 ratti) weight standard found from Sugh and in its vicinity can undoubtedly be attributed to the Kur Mahajanapada. It is for the first time that a hoard of a new series of the minuscule silver coins from this place has been brought to light. These coins conform to 4 ratti weight standard and represent the pada or quarter denomination of the above-mentioned coins. Unlike most other minuscule coins these pieces have silver core and contain fairly high silver content. Un-inscribed cast copper coins have also been found from Sugh in substantial numbers and so also the Imperial five-symbol punch-marked silver coins. Two hoards containing respectively two and one Indo-Greek coins and some stray pieces recovered from the site have also been described and their importance discussed. Copper and lead coins bearning the early Brami legend Kadasa are known since long but their exact provenance was not known. New evidence established beyond doubt that Sugh is the provenance of these coins. The monarchical nature of these issues have also been established. Coins of the descendants of Kada including the Mitra-ending rulers are published for the first time together with the earliest octagonal lead coins of India. New data the analysis of the tribal coins, particularly the Kunindas and the Yaudheyas, has also been presented. 1. Introduction 2. Sugh 3. Coins of the Kuru Mahajanapada 4. Minuscule Silver coins 5.

About this Item: Aryan, New Delhi, 2007. Hardbound. Condition: As New. New. Contents Preface. Acknowledgements. Introduction. 1. The Agras. 2. The Arjunayanas. 3. The Audumbaras. 4. The Kulutas. 5. The Kshudrakas. 6. The Kunindas. 7. The Malavas. 8. The Pauravas. 9. The Rajanyas. 10. The Savitriputras. 11. The Sibis. 12. The Trigartas. 13. The Uddehikas. 14. The Vemakis / Vaiyamakas. 15. The Vrishnis. 16. The Yaudheyas. Appendices. Bibliography. Index. Tribal coins throw a flood of light on the history culture religion economy polity trade commerce technology symbology metrology movements etc. of the various tribes in ancient India. They thus enlighten us about various aspects of the life and culture of the people in ancient India. Numismatic discoveries made from time to time interpretations and newer techniques of analysis have rendered earlier views in many cases as obsolete and worth revision. Some new types of Agreya coins published recently throw fresh light on the religions proclivities of the Agras. Coins discovered from Nohar show the presence of the Arjunayana tribe in Northeastern Rajasthan. A critical analysis of the typology and provenance of Audumbara coins reveals that the monarchical issues of the Mitra rulers do not actually belong to the tribe and that there was no ruler of the name of Mahadeva belonging to the Audumbara stock thus rendering the old classification of their coins as outdated. The discovery of the hoards at Chakkar near Mandi and at Hat Koti and Jalog in Shimla District in Himachal Pradesh stray finds of new types of Kuninda coins their coin molds from regular excavations at Sanghol in Punjab and their coins from the site of the Syena Chiti (Eagle shaped fire altar) at Purola in Uttaranchal have thrown fresh light on their history culture religion kingship capital mint site and techniques of minting trade and commerce etc. The diminutive nature of Malava coins as evidence of poor economy stands challenged in the light of epigraphic evidence. The existence of the Kshudrakas and Savitriputras has been proved on the basis of their coins. The Vemakis were known only from Rudravarman's silver and a dubious copper coin but the author has brought two of their new rulers Bhavavarman and Sivaghosha to light. The settlement of the Vrishnis at Sunet near Ludhiana is proved by a number of their seals sealings and copper coins. Many fallacies about the Yaudheyas have also been corrected by a fresh study and analysis of their coins. This book based on a study of various published and unpublished hoards and stray finds of coins in institutional and private collections is the first Indian publication on the tribal coins containing the largest number of illustrations bringing to light many new coins and offering new interpretations. 290 pp. Seller Inventory # 62039
