17th Century Gold Coin Discovered at Keeladi Archaeological Excavation Site
Another Historical Treasure Unearthed at Keeladi.
Archeologists, who are currently digging the Keeladi archeological site, are thrown in constant excitement in recent times. Just after a couple of weeks from the unearthing of a large animal’s bone and a furnace-like structure, officials found a 17th-century gold coin in one of the cluster villages of Keeladi.
The sixth phase excavation started in February 2020 and faced many hindrances like Covid-19 lockdown and repeating rain in the Keeladi and its cluster villages, Agaram, Manalur, and Konthagai. The obstacles didn’t stop the archeologists from unearthing historical objects from the site and surprise the state.
The Sixth Phase excavation in Keeladi is underway under R. Sivanandam, Deputy Director of Archaeology. According to Sivanandam, the gold coin was found in Agarm village.
The coin has some representations on it. One of the representations is a U-shaped symbol on one side. The U-Like symbol can be related to a familiar symbol, ‘Naamam,’ a symbol which the Vaishnavites wear on their forehead. On the other side, there are 12 dots and a figure with two hands and two legs below the dots.
The Coin is about 300 mg and 1cm in diameter and belongs to the 17th century. People of that century mentioned this coin as ‘Veerarayan Panam’ in their slang. No gold coins were discovered in Keeladi before. Now, this finding is exceptionally a benchmark in this excavation, said Jamini Ramesh, another archaeological enthusiast based out in Madurai.
Previously, a 6th-century Iranian coin was discovered at Keeladi. Archaeological experts in this excavation state that Keeladi civilization is more than 2300 years old, and they believe that there would be more such finding, waiting to be unearthed, underneath the surface.
Recently, there were many burial jars, and burial jars with human skull bones were also discovered in the Keeladi excavation site and its cluster villages.
