I found a “kalvettu” (stone slab with pictures and incriptions, maybe “vattezhuth” ) in the tamil nadu govt museum, at Coimbatore. The interesting part is that there are two crosses on the top of the slab one on the left side and the other on the other. Looks like some kind of an order from the King?. The keeper don not know anything about the contents and do not know who can provide details.
The slab was retrieved from “pattanam” village near coimbatore, from where many historical artifacts where found. Even today people talk about “gold coins” hidden in these areas and comparatively the land prices here are very high.
If anybody is interested please contact me.
