The Puranas state that there were nine rulers in the Naga family of Padmavati, but does not give either their names or their order of succession. One of them is Ganapati-naga. The coins of Ganapati-naga are much more common at Mathura than at Padmavati.
The various Kings of the Nagas of Narwar issued coins of ¼, ½ and 1 kakini, from 5–15 mm in size and all issued in bronze. Designs were humped bull facing left, wheel peacock, trident and various other designs. The Nagas of Narwar occupied the region of Padmavati, Kantipuri, Mathura and Vidisha around the period of 200-340 AD. In this period there was substantial trade between India and Rome in spices, fabric and gold.
