Comments This king was known as Damaghsada II, but I showed in a recent paper ... The Western Kshatrapa Damazada, Numismatic Chronicle, No. 169 (2009), pp. 173-187 ... that his name was actually Damazada, and that it was spelled at this mint Damaysada. His coins are rare and very hard to find. This coin has a beautiful portrait: a truly choice coin!
