Comments The coins of Aspavarma are RARE, especially the small drachms or quarter units. The coins offered as Aspavarma are frequently misidentified drachms of Azes. This coin is incontrovertibly an Aspavarma issue, as the name can be read clearly on the reverse. For comparison, I have provided a photo of another Aspavarma drachm below. Please note the coin below is not for sale, as it is from my personal collection. It is provided to help you identify the offered coin (pictured above) as being of Aspavarma. The two coins appear to share the same reverse die.
