Azes II (35 BC - 5 AD), king of Bactria, minted drachm coins inspired by ancient Greek designs originating 500 years earlier. The obverse legends were written in Greek, the reverse is in Indian script, making his coinage among the earliest bilingual coins. The coins were hand made by striking hot, silver disks between iron dies. This crude method resulted in imperfect, but remarkably detailed coins. The king on horseback is inscribed on the one side, and a standing figure of Zeus is on the reverse. All of Azes coins were in circulation when Christ lived. It can be assumed that some were struck on the day of Christ's birth.
