About the Book
India representing the Eastern consciousness, and Greece representing the Western, had been in close contacts since the remote antiquity. Their contribution and striking similarities in the domain of science, philosophy, mythology, art and literature are well-known. In fact there can be no true comprehension of either of them, without understanding the other.

With Alexander and following him the assimilation of Bactrian Greeks in Indian population, the two civilizations had become still closer to each other. The flourishing trade contacts between India and the Greco-Roman world further provided the opportunities of interaction between the two. This led to the exchange not only of various products but also of thoughts and ideas.

The present volume contains scholarly research on, and related to the exchange of thoughts and ideas between the two great civilizations of India and Greece. This volume is the result of academic works of learned scholars from the fields of Classical History, Archaeology, Philosophy, Literature, Art and Numismatics. These essays have been selected from the papers presented in two different international seminars at the Greek Chair, Jawaharlal Nehru University in the years 2014 and 21)17.

The volume is a significant contribution to the field of lndo-Greek studies and is valuable for students and scholars alike.

Preface
Comparative study in Greek and Indian subjects is popular amongst researchers of Humanities and Social-Sciences world-wide and present volume is the result of academic works of such enthusiastic learned scholars from the fields of Classical History, Archaeology, Philosophy, Literature, Art and Numismatics. These essays have been selected from the papers presented in two different international seminars at the Greek Chair, Jawaharlal Nehru University in the year 2014 and 2017. The need of organizing these seminars was felt during intellectually stimulating discussions between Dr. Kapila Vatsyayan, Chairperson, Asia Project - India International Center and Professor Udai Prakash Arora, Greek Chair, way back in 2010-2011 and this task was assigned to the editor of this volume in 2012. It is a matter of personal and professional satisfaction to me that these seminars were successfully convened and concluded with desired goals achieved.

I am greatly thankful to the Vice Chancellors Professor Sudhir Kumar Sopory and Professor Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar, Rectors Professor Sudha Pay and Professor Chintamani Mahapatra of Jawaharlal Nehru University for their kind support at every step of the task.
