Denomination : Silver unit, with a weight that suggests a denomination of 64 rattis.

Date : I think the dating of these is by no means certain, but in general most references would place this in the mid 8th to mid 9th century AD.

Reference : I have not found a exact reference for this one, but it came to me with a reference to M (SEA) 218-221 (and a date of 9th to 10th century AD).

Size : 28.1 x 30.0 mm.  Weight : 6.66 grams but was probably just over 7 grams when minted.

Grade : Fine, but the coin is highly crystalline and the edges have crumbled a little just above and below the obverse.

Obverse : Bull with a inscription above that names Harikela.  The style of the caligraphy is crude, probably placing this coin late in the series.

Reverse : Very stylized trident with dots around.
