Indo Greeks

Bactria is the area between Hindukush-Acsus-Heerat mountains.

It is located in the north-west of India.

The rulers of Bactria are called Bactrian Greeks.

Demetrius was the most prominent among the Bactrian Greeks.

He invaded on India and annexed some parts of Punjab and Sindh.

Heliocles was the last Bactrian Greek ruler.

Real Indo-Greeks:

Appollodotus, Heliodors and Menander were the Indo-Greek rulers.

Heliodors erected a pillar called Besnagar Pillar or Garuda Pillar.

Menander was the greatest among the Indo-Greek rulers.

His capital was Sakala(modern Sialkot).

He issued gold coins.

Milindapanha was composed by Nagasena, the Buddhist philosopher.

It was stated in the Milindapanha that the Menander was defeated by Nagasena in the discussion and hence he joined in Buddhism.
