These Bronze drachm coins date from the reign of Azes II. Azes II was king of Bactria - present day Afghanistan - from 35 B.C. to A.D. He was a political decendant of Alexandar the Great, who brought Greek culture to the East.
- Obverse: The legend is in Greek.
- Reverse: The legend is in Indian script, making this coinage among the earliest bilingual coinage.
- Comes in a protective deluxe folder with story and Certificate of Authenticity.
Much of Azes's coinage was issued before the birth of Christ, but some had to be struck on the day of Christ's birth, and all were in circulation when Christ lived.
The Magi, Caspar (or Gaspar), Melchior and Balthazar, were thought to be court astrologers from the east. Many scholars believe Caspar to have been a representative sent by "The Great King" Azes II of ancient Bactria to the Holy Land to pay homage to the newborn Jesus.
