In Greek mythology, Thrasos[ pronunciation? ] (Greek Θράσος n.) is the personified concept of boldness.

Although the word θράσος itself could be used both in the positive ("courage") and the negative ("over-boldness, insolence") senses, [1] in the only context where Thrasos appears as a personification (a daemon), it is definitely a malicious and suspicious being, mentioned together with Hybris and Atë and opposed to Dike.

Thraso Indo-Greek king

Thraso, latinized as Thrason, 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, 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.
