weight : 17.4 grams

The Kushan Empire was founded by Kujulu Kadphises, whose son was Vima Takto. Kadphises and, intially, Vima Takto issued coins that were largely imitative of the peoples they conquered. One of the most recognizable coins of the period bears an obverse portrait and a horseman on the back. The legend reads only Soter Megas - the Great Savior, and the actual name of the issuing king long remained unknown. The discovery of the Rabatak inscription, though, changed Kushan history by providing evidence to verify the elusive identity of 'Soter Megas'. His name was Vima Tak[to] .

  • Unfortunately, I still have not received the broadcast. Presumably the customs will hold them back.

    Il lotto è fermo alle poste doganali di Milano per problemi non chiari e io certamente non ho l'onere di risolvere il problema!
