Previously in our animated historical documentary series on the easternmost Greek states, we have covered the history of the Greco-Bactrian Kingdom http://bit.ly/2RJpa5u and the war of the Heavenly Horses against the Han China http://bit.ly/2s5W5pK, but Bactria wasn't the only Greek state in the region, as they also managed to create a kingdom in India under the Euthydemid dynasty. Their centuries-long presence in the Indian subcontinent, and the cultural legacy they left behind leaves a fascinating story for history enthusiasts around the world to study for years to come
