Indo-Greek Kingdom of Bactria

Bactrian Coinage
King Eucratides I

Around 240 BC, the areas that today represent Afghanistan, western Pakistan, and northern India had severed ties with Seleukid dominance, asserting their independence under the reign of their own monarchs. This was vividly documented through a captivating series of coin portraits, remarkable in their potent realism and intricate detail. Eukratides I, reigning approximately from 170-145 BC, was notably the most prominent among these rulers.
