The present volume is a collection of French papers on Graeco-Bactrian, Indo-Greek and Punch-marked coins found in Afghanistan. Particularly noteworthy are those discovered at Ai Khanoum – the Graeco-Bactrian site excavated by the French Archaeological Mission in Afghanistan between 1965 and 1978.The coins are catalogued and their historical, socio-religious and economic significance assessed. This book is, therefore, likely to interest a wide range of scholars working on that period.
