Comments
Until recently, this type would have been assigned to the Hoysalas, as it is a close variant of Ganesh Karnataka Coins, 8.30 and 8.31. However, in a well-researched article, Govindraya Prabhu Sanoor ("Coins of the Nagarkhanda Kadambas," Journal of the Oriental Numismatic Society, 228 (Summer 2016), pp. 18-23) has reattributed them to this branch of the Kadamba dynasty that ruled in Nagarkhanda.
 
Their coins are VERY RARE.
