Gadhia coins are spread over wide areas of Northern India. I divided them into six emissions, of which em. 5 is again divided into three groups (fig. 3-5). From em. 1-6, the profile on the obverse and the firealtar on the reverse of the coins gradually degenerate until they cannot further be recognized as such. Accordingly, the silver deteriorates and the flan becomes thicker but smaller in diameter. This is due to a chronological development which starts in the 1st half of the 9th century and reaches its end in the 1st half of the 13th century. Although the Sasanian crown on the obverse and the assistences of the firealtar on the reverse degenerate severely, they are traceable up to em. 6 (fig. 1-2). Em. 1-2 may be associated with the late Gūrjaras, em. 3 with the Pratīhāras, em. 5 a with the later Pratīhāras, em. 4 perhaps with the Solankis, em. 5b partly with the later Pratīhāras. The later em. 5c and 6, however, may belang to any medieval dynasty that succeeded the Pratīhāras, except for the few coins that show legends on their reverse.
