PARAMARAS OF VIDARBHA: Jagadeva, 12th century, AV padoga (3.67g), C. Gupta, ICS Newsletter no. 43 (2007); Rath, Num.Digest vol. 17, four punches, including blundered Kannada Sri twice, facing right, spearhead with symbol, and legend punch with Nagari legend: Sri Jagadeva , uniface, EF. This coin type had been assigned to the Chalukya king Jagadekamalla II by Chattopadhyaya, but has been recently reassigned by Chandrasekhar Gupta to the Paramaras of Vidarbha. Gupta did not note a very interesting aspect of this coin that strengthens his argument for attributing it to Jagadeva Paramara - the symbol inside the spearhead, variously described as a fish, a lingam, or, by Gupta, a shrine, but which really looks like a stick-figure human being - is echoed in the coin of Jagadeva's son, Bhojadeva Paramara.
