Comments Bhadrayasha was an ephemeral ruler who seems to have followed Strato II and III in the Jammu area. His coins were almost unobtainable until a small group of them was found a few years ago; they are still very rare. This coin could perhaps be improved with a little gentle cleaning. It is remarkable in that it shows a clear Greek legend on the obverse, which is rare to find.
