Damajadasri III as portrayed in his coin.

Damajadasri III was a ruler of the Western Satraps. His reign lasted possibly[1] from c. 251 AD to 256 AD.[2][3]


Damajadasri was one of the four sons of Davasena. Damajadasri was the youngest of his siblings. He succeeded his elder brother Vijayasena as a ruler.[2]

He most likely held the title of mahaksatrapa. There is no evidence that he would have held the office of ksatrapa.[4]

Large amounts of coins struck in name of Damajadasri have been found.[4]

Damajadasri was succeeded as Western Satrap by his nephew Rudrasena II who was a son of Viradaman.[1]
