Le pendentif inscrit du musée national du Cambodge : une «bague de Rāma » datant du règne de Jayavarman VII (K. 1277) ?

Abstract : The silver pendant, bearing the inscription K. 1277, recently offered to the National Museum of Phnom Penh by a private collector, is rather an unusual piece of jewelry in Ancient Cambodia. Nevertheless, a careful study of the bas-reliefs of Angkor allows us to identify similar pendants, definitely at Angkor Vat, and possibly also in a Rāmāyaṇa scene represented on the Baphuon, where the pendant seems to take on a certain relevance. Dated to 1218/19 AD, the text mentions Kamrateṅ Añ Srī Dharaṇīndrarājalaksmī, who could be identified as the sister of Jayavarman VII ; if this is the case, it could be the most recent inscription from the reign of this monarch. Unfortunately, it also represents further proof of the importance of the preservation of Khmer cultural heritage. The loss of the archaeological contexts of such objects is particularly regrettable.
