It does not even apply to the great temples of Mediaeval India or the gothic cathedrals of Christendom, in complying with whose intricate symbolism and shaping whose exquisite figures the builders were hammering out the lineaments of their own true nature.

Demetrius, known as the `first king of Bactria and of India' is here represented with a helmet resembling an elephant's head complete with proboscis and tusk, and it is surmised that he was conspicuously imitating Alexander whom he regarded as his ancestor and ideal.

In this connection the adoption of the imperial title `king of kings' by the Śaka and Pahlava suzerains is worthy of notice.
