Comments Joe Cribb has assigned the Heraios coins to the Kushan king Kujula Kadphises, although the evidence is not absolutely conclusive.

The Heraios obols mostly come with "square" letters with the legends somewhat blundered, but there are some very rare (and presumably early) specimens that have round letters and good legends, such as this one. It is VERY RARE!
