Reference Mitchiner Land of Water 22
Comments The Vira Jadamarah coinage seems to follow the Kanishka imitation coins, or may be contemporaneous with them, but issued further east. When Mitchiner wrote his book, Land of Water, in 2000, he noted that only two Vira Jadamarah coins were known. Since then, a few more have appeared, but they are still extremely rare. This is a particularly SUPERB specimen, much better than the few that have appeared at auction.
