New display Coins at the Crossroads of Asia is now on view in the Money Gallery.⁠
From around 250 BCE to 10 CE, a series of rulers controlled an area of Central and South Asia in the ancient regions of Bactria and Gandhara.⁠
This display gives tantalising glimpses into the history of those ancient rulers and our understanding of the history of the Graeco-Bactrian and Indo-Greek kingdoms, as they are now known.⁠
