Mughal era coins discovered in farmer's field in Wanaparthy

Wanaparthy: A farmer unearthed what is believed to be either Mughal or Bahmani era silver coins while he was levelling his field.

This discovery happened in Kattepally village in Athmakur mandal on Monday morning, while Narayan Rao was tilling his agricultural land.

He found 10 silver coins with inscriptions in Persian language and on Tuesday morning he discovered another 10 coins.

He immediately informed Athmakur police, who reached the spot and took possession of the coins. The coins were handed over to MRO of Athmakur and would be sent to Wanaparthy Collector, who will take a decision on handing it over to Department of Archaeology or any other authority concerned.

The exact period of the coins is yet to be determined, as there is no Archaeologist in Wanaparthy district.
