From inside of book:
The item of this publication is to enquire the background of the nice Iranian province which shaped the japanese component of the Persian Empire, and which, after the Macedonian invasion, turned an autonomous Greek state. The valiant Greeks who governed the rustic have been afterwards pushed over the Hindu-Kush, the place they maintained themselves for almost a century longer, ultimately succumbing to the tribes from the north which had initially displaced them. hence it is going to be visible that the background of Bactria falls clearly into 4 divisions. Passing over the mass of legend which surrounds the earliest interval, targeted mainly around the determine of Zarathustra Spitama, we discover ourselves on extra reliable flooring after we come to
deal with Bactria as a satrapy of the Persian Empire.

After the overthrow of Persia by way of Alexander we input upon the second one part within the historical past of the rustic — its subjugation and payment through the Macedonians. The 3rd interval starts off with the insurrection of Diodotus in 250 b.c, while Bactria assumes the function of an autonomous Greek state, extending its sway not just over Sogdiana to the north, yet over a good part of the trendy Afghanistan and the Panjab. The ultimate bankruptcy of the background of the Bactrian Greeks commences with their evacuation of the rustic north of the Hindu-Kush, once they made Sagala their capital, and ends with their ultimate persession via the Kushan monarchs.
