This presentation is very academic and dry rather than entertaining, but if you can power through it, there's some very interesting information contained therein. Starting around the 28 minute mark, there's a brief discussion of Roman coins found in India. Fortunately, this video is extensively captioned.

Thanks for the interesting video. I wasn't aware that coins helped decipher some ancient languages. Because the narrator is only reading the multipoint slides one bullet point at at time, and not adding any information, for efficiency I skipped through the video to completed slides.

The lecture mentions various hoards that've been discovered in India. Here's an excellent webpage on the Bayana Hoard, with terrific photos of Gupta era gold coins:
