As the stupa (Buddhist monument) had been enlarged and rebuilt over the centuries, worshippers added new deposits. When he opened the stupa, General Ventura recognized that the deeper objects were the oldest ones. The last dedication, "deposit D", was probably deposited in 150-200 CE. This is a copper coin of the Kushan Empire, circa 172-150 CE. Found at the Manikyala stupa, modern-day Pakistan. (The British Museum, London).
