Bactrian 2nd Cent BCE Contract mentioning Struck Coinage and Scythians



I was doing some syllabus work and ended up reading this article (just fascinating and also lots of ethics issues about source of objects!)

I’m posting hear with some pretty coins so I can find it again the next time I teach Bactria or Scythia and use in my lecture.

Antimachos I tetradrachm.




Antimachos II tetradrachm.
