This catalogue is based on two main categories of coins in the Smithsonian Institution: The General Collection, and the Malakand Hoard. The general collection of Graeco-Bactrian and Indo-scythian coins, 275 in number, is made of three major donations, by Raymond J. Herbert, former curator of the National Numismatic Collection, Smithsonian Institution, by W.F. Spengler, numismatist and collector, and by Markoff-Moghadam, former American Officer in Tehran. The group of 257 coins, known as the Malakand hoard named after its presumed find-spot, belongs to two dynasties, Indo-Scythian.
