Wikipedia Meaning and Definition on 'Thrasonical'

Thraso (Greek ΘΡΑΣΟΝΟΣ) was an Indo-Greek king in Central and Western Punjab, unknown until the 1982 discovery of one of his coins by R.C. Senior in the Surana hoard. The coin is in a style similar to those of Menander I, has the same type of Athena, and shares one of Menander's mint marks. On the coin, the title of Thraso is "Basileus Megas" ("Great King"), a title which only Eucratides the Great had dared take before him and which is seemingly misplaced on the young boy Thraso, whose single preserved coin indicates a small and insignificant reign.

Osmund Bopearachchi suggests a preliminary dating of 95-80 BCE, but Senior himself concludes that Thraso was the son and heir of Menander (c.155-130 BCE), since his coin not worn and found in a hoard with only earlier coins.
