Hello all

Basically I have a school project that I need to get done to graduate in two weeks but to make a terrible story short I need info on the Indo-Greeks.

Anything from their overall culture, language, military, anything that could possibly help would be amazing.

Well, Aupmanyav has sent you two Wikipedia links which are basic, but useful.

For a biography of the most fascinating of all the Indo-Greek kings, please see the Wikipedia entry on Menander I Soter. This Menander, called Milinda in Indian sources, was first king of Bactria and later of a large portion of southern Afghanistan and northern India. He was powerfully attracted to Buddhism (to which creed he may have converted), and enjoyed engaging in philosophical/doctrinal conversations with Buddhist sages.

Have you seen my brief post on Menander I? He was an extraordinary king.

In the book called "Milinda Panha", his conversations with the erudite Buddhist teacher Nagasena are recorded. Menander obviously loved India and Indian wisdom.

I don't know much about Menander/Milinda. I briefly studied about him in school during history classes.
