An outstanding example of one of the finest Greek portrait coins ever produced and that from a mint at the easternmost outpost of Greek civilization, 3,000 miles from the homeland on the frontier of the barbarian world which consumed it at the end of Eukratides lifetime. Historic in more ways than one!

An absolute stunner. I am envious.
