Antimachos II. AE21, c. 165-160 BC (?)

Kings of Bactria. Antimachos II. (c. 165-160 BC?). AE square quadruple unit (21 mm, 8.26 g).
Obv. BAΣIΛEOΣ NIKHΦOPOY ANTIMAXOY, aegis.
Rev. Legend in karoshti around wreath and palm; below, monogram.
Bopearachchi Série 2a; SNG ANS 426-7.

Rare. Very fine.

Antimachos II. used to be dated later until a tax receipt was published in 1994 that named him together with Antimachos I., who was his father. This shows how difficult the chronology of the Graeco-Bactrian kings still is.
