Comments
The Sasanian style gold coins of Sind were unknown until Robert Senior published a few in the ONS Newsletter 129. They may be Hunnic issues, judging by the crude execution and the Hunnic style tamghas they sometimes feature. They are extremely rare. Because of the crown type, we can date this coin to the second quarter of the fifth century.
