Panta'leon

6. A king of Bactria, or rather perhaps of the Indo-Caucasian provinces south of the Paropamisus, known only from his coins. From these it appears probable that he was the successor of Agathocles, and his reign is referred by Professor Wilson to about B. C. 120 (Ariana, p. 300); but Lassen would assign it to a much earlier period. (Lassen, Zur Gesch. d. Griechischen K├Ânigen v. Baktrien, pp. 192, 263.) The coins of these two kings, Agathocles and Pantaleon, are remarkable as bearing inscriptions both in the Greek and in Sanscrit characters.
