This is the most comprehensive catalogue of all the known coin-types of the Gupta emperors and also the coins of Sasanka, the king of Bengal. The volume is in three parts. In the Introduction, while discussing the history, the geography and chronology, John Allan has examined all the problems relating to the rulers, the coinage and the coin-types, legends, the history of the finds and metrology besides giving a genealogical table, a list of Gupta emperors, and a table of known dates. In the Catalogue all the known types of coins of the Gupta emperors and of Sasanka and certain unattributed coins of the Gupta fabric, in the British Museum collection, have been published giving all the technical details for each specimen. For the sake of completeness, the author has also included a number of specimens from other collections as well. The third part contains, besides a general index, comprehensive indexes of rulers, inscriptions, characters in field, symbols and types. All the important coin-types have been published in twenty-four plates accompany the volume.
