The Ikshvakus became independent in the eastern Deccan (modern-day Telangana and Andhra Pradesh) from the Satavahanas and established their capital at Nagarjunikonda (Vijayapuri) around 227 AD. Their kingdom was eventually annexed by the Pallavas in the 4th century.
 
Ikshvaku coinage is inspired by the Satavahanas.  It is quite rare to find a specimen with a legend.
 
Very rare.
