Comments The coins of Damajadsri II carry only three dates (S. 154-156), so his reign must have lasted only a year or two. This would account for the scarcity of his coins. This coin has a beautiful portrait and almost full legend. A SUPERB example, better than the one illustrated in Fishman, and better in hand than the photos indicate.
