The Coin Galleries: Western Kshatrapas: Prithvisena

Prithvisena was the son of Rudrasena I and it appears he succeeded his father. So far, all the published coins of his have the date 144 and list him as kshatrapa. The coins are extremely rare. He must have had a very short reign and was apparently deposed very quickly by his uncle Dāmasena.
