Maneless Lion coin:

These have been found inside the platform and below the pavement level of the Jetavanaramaya built by king Mahasen (277 - 304 A.D.) and have since been conclusively identified as being from the reign of King Mahasen. 

On the obverse, in line circle, maneless Lion stands facing right, normally.

On the reverse, in line circle, four dots disposed in a cross
