THE MUSEUM ASTAMANGALA SLAB.
The Astamangala slab has many representation of Aminals, flowers, and symbols. These can be traced to the symbols found on coins. Most of these are found on the silver kahapanas minted in India and perhaps in the Island too. These are found on coins of all periods Early and late Anuradapura period and Pollonanaruva, Dambedeniya and Kotte periods.I have placed some coins only up to perhaps 6 Cent AD.
