Comments The Dutch received Negapatnam, about 150 miles south of Madras, in a grant from the Nayaka of Tanjore, and issued coins based on Tanjore types. This is a later issue with a more angular "Kali." The Kali figure is in fact a degraded version of the lion with crescent above seen on the Vira Raya type fanams.
