bactrian-kushan or......? stumped

I just got this in a group of kushan , Indo -greek ....I think it might be the last Greek Bactrian king, Heliocles? Too obscure for my small reference collection. Searching the web.
Any information would be great. Thanks

Postumous issue in name of Hermaios

It is a posthumous issue in the name of Hermaios. I will see if I can find the big work by Senior and give an exact citation.

Yep

Hello again. You are really being a big help. For my 65th birthday my brother once again sent me a partial hoard of 200 coins to attribute and keep or sell.
He and I bought them them in 1992 when they were cheap for his research on the proper identification of the order of Characene kings and Elymais etc.
He calls the ones he sent hyphenated Indos....
Anyway once I knew the name I found several for sale on V Coins. Adds a bit more information as I follow Kushans, Heppthalites, Uigurs, Satraps and a zillion others around central Asia. All in my beginners attempt to understand slivers of the silk road.
I just got out of the hospital and cleaning and attributing has been so enjoyable...a healing
luxury.

So thanks again, you were of course exactly right. When I'm able (post flood and pacemaker) I will certainly spend days at the ANS library.

regards
Ray

Glad

Glad you are doing well! Cleaning, attributing can be relaxing--and sometimes a bit frustrating! I have been working up some material from published sources for an article or two I hope to write, and now I am going through the trial of trying to find some relatively obscure eastern European publications. At least it keeps me off the streets, and for that the neighbors are truly grateful.
