Historical background


BACTRIA - Bactrian kingdom - I Apollodotus

(174-165 BC)

Apollodotus is contemporary Antimachus I Theos (185-170 AC.) Antimachus Nicephorus II (160-155 AC.) Demetrius II (175-170 AC). Eucratides and I (170-145 AC. ). In fact, the history of Bactria is very poorly known. These kings reigned simultaneously certainly parts of the great kingdom. With mint, we learn qu'Apollodote directly succeeds Agathocles (190-180 AC.) And Pantaleon (190-185 AC)..
