Comments These coins were unobtainable until a small hoard emerged recently. They are still rare. The distinguishing features of this "Series 5" coin are that a sankh (conch) and cakra (discus) have replaced the circles in front of and above the bull.

Attributions are tentative and based on my recent paper (to appear in the journal Numismatic Digest). A brief summary of the work can be seen here:
