Puzzur is a village present in Tipparthy Mandal, Nalgonda District in Telangana State. The archaeology officials excavated the early historic site located between Pazzur-Yarragaddagudem villages in Tipparthy Mandal. In the excavations, they unearthed one copper and two lead coins. The archaeologists estimated that they probably belonged to Satavahana and post-Satavahana periods.
The coins belonged to Mahatalavara, feudal lords who were the rulers of Telangana under Satavahana once upon a time. The archaeology officials said that “Mahatalavara, a feudatory family that ruled parts of Telangana under Satavahana and also during the post-Satavahana period, had minted these coins”.
The archaeologists identified that one of the coins belongs to the Mahatavalaras period. As the two lead coins were having a horse symbol on the obverse side. But, they could not identify the symbol on another side of these coins as they are in deteriorated shape. And, the copper coin was rusted and they could not identify anything on it.
In the excavations, the officials also unearthed a crystal-made 0.06 cm long conarium rod. The rod was used by ancient women for the decoration of bindi on their foreheads. Big size bangles made of shells were also found in the excavations.
Retired Chief Curator Yerramraju Bhanu Murthy said that “they had also found similar coins at Dhulikatta in Peddapalli District, Peddankuru, Kotilingala in Jagitial district, and Phangiri, Yeleshwaram in Nalgonda district”.
Mr. Bhanu Murthy, an archaeology department official said that “after finding these coins they came to the conclusion that Mahathalavaras also ruled the Pazzur area apart from the above places.”
