Comments These small drachms of "Varhran III," probably issued by Kidara, are all very rare! They were unobtainable until a small hoard of them was found recently, apparently in Uzbekistan. Compare the crown on this coin with that on the similar Kidarite silver drachm and on the front-facing drachm that actually has the name of Kidara on it.
