The Greek Kingdoms of Central Asia

Greek rulers became involved in the power struggle for Central Asia from the mid-third century BC. There remain few written records from this time, but archaeological excavations have revealed a fascinating legacy of Hellenistic artistic culture in Central Asia from this era.  Sites such as Taxila were ancient centers of international cultural exchange from the times of the earliest Greek conquests, when the great east-west trade routes were controlled by the Greeks.
