Description

The Ghorids were a family who ruled a region of central and eastern Afghanistan and western Pakistan.

The earliest ancient Indian coins were the “bent bar” punchmarked silvers of the Achaemenid Persians occupying Gandhara in northwest Pakistan. By the 3rd century BC coins were in general use in most of India and Ceylon.
