Comments Huvishka's coppers come with three different obverses: the elephant-rider, the couch-recliner, and the cross-legged, and with numerous reverse deities.

This coin is a scarce type, unlisted in Mitchiner, with its unusual spelling of Mithra's name and Mithra in a pose usually seen for Athsho.
