Obverse: at top, in Punjabi script, "Devagandhari Ragini, wife of Malkausa" (devgandhari ragini malkausa di bharja). Traces of an earlier, sloppier version of the same inscription appear beneath this line. Reverse: at top, in Takri, "malkosa di bharja dua patara." Also, a much more scribbled line, which Goswamy thinks is the dealer's hand (seen also on Dipak raga from this set). In English: "Malkaus."
