Menander I Soter was a Greek of the Indo-Greek Kingdom who established a large empire in South Asia and became a patron of Buddhism. Menander was born in the Caucasus, and was initially a king of Bactria. Ancient Indian writers indicate that he launched expeditions southward into Rajasthan and as far east down the Ganges River Valley as Pataliputra, and the Greek geographer Strabo wrote that he "conquered more tribes than Alexander the Great."
"Pieces of Eight". The Spanish minted pieces of eight from New World gold and silver. "Eight Reals” or pieces-of-eight known to pirates, were minted in the Spanish Main and sent back to Europe in huge quantities with treasure fleets. Pirates plundered many Spanish galleons in search of pieces-of-eight as a handful would have been worth a small fortune to any pirate.
