One side (reverse) of this elaborate gold pendant has designs based on coins of the Kushan rulers Kanishka I (100-126 CE) or Huvishka (126-163 CE); it shows an image of the goddess of wealth. On the other side (obverse, this image), the image is based on a coin of the Roman Emperor Constantine I. Probably made in India or Pakistan in 300s CE. (The British Museum, London).
