Awesome Anjan.  Glad there are Indian collectors who appreciate Western coinage.  Few and  far between it seems  :-\

As an extension of my interest in the coins of Bactrian kings, I started collecting coins of Seleukid and Cappadocian kings also. Now I have quite a few of them. I shall post them one by one. Each coin is a beauty by itself.
