Reference Deyell 167, Mitchiner Non-Islamic 649-52
Comments A very unusual coin showing a battle scene on the reverse (see image below for line drawing of the three major figures in the scene). Normally it is hard to make out the scene because so much of the composition is off the flan. This is a specially nice specimen as it shows all three figures, the rider and both of the two victims very clearly.

Mitchiner assigns this coin type to the Silaharas of Konkan, but acknowledges other attributions are possible. Deyell lists it after the coinage of the Paramaras of Malwa. Maheshwari, whose analysis of this coinage is the most detailed, assigns it to the Paramaras and suggests it was issued in celebration of the recovery of Malwa by the Paramaras around 1190.
