In Uzbekistan a couple of years ago, I saw some Graeco-Bactrian coins for sale in a market. The price alone (a couple of dollars each) indicated that they were fakes. But can you spot the one very obvious clue that these were not produced in Hellenistic Bactria?
Some great 3D reconstructions of Ai Khanoum and Takht-i Sangin by 422 South:
The Ai Khanoum Gymnasium.
The Takht-i Sangin Temple of the Oxus.
The River Oxus as seen from Takht-i Sangin.
