Comments This is an issue from Gandhara that closely follows the issues of Azes II (Senior 99). It has the same monogram in the reverse left field, but adds the Gondopharid symbol in the obverse right field and the tiny nandipada between the sceptre and Zeus's robe. Note also how the Greek letter Ω is written here as W, and the word MEΓAΛOY has here been truncated to MΓ. A CHOICE coin, in excellent condition for the type!
