Historical background


BACTRIA - Bactrian kingdom - Antimachus II NICÉPHORE

(160-155 BC)

O. Bopearachchi shared mint Antimachus between Antimachus I Theos (185-170 BC.) And the Antimachus Nicephorus II (160-155 BC), whose reign is poorly understood. This second Antimachus was he a son Antimachus I because there is a historical gap of ten years between the two monarchs?.
