Silver tetradrachm of Agathocles, Greek Bactrian, about 190-180 BCE. This coin carries the portrait of Demetrius I (reigned around 200-190 BCE), wearing the elephant-scalp head-dress of Alexander the Great. The elephant-scalp is a reference to the conquest of territories in India accomplished by both these kings. Herakles appears on the reverse, holding a club and lionskin, with the Greek legend 'of king Agathocles the Just' ranged on three sides.
