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

The coins with Pharro reverse are very rare, and this coin has Pharro's right arm bent at the elbow, a variety unlisted in Mitchiner or Göbl.
