Historical background

Kushan Empire - HUVISKA


The Koushan empire emerged from the ruins of the kingdom of Bactria and the Indo-Kush. We know gold coins for Vima Kadphises (108-142), a contemporary of Trajan and Hadrian. The empire flourished under Vasou Deva I (185-228) and then disappeared in the second half of the fourth century, replaced by the Gupta empire, founded by Chandragupta I (320-335).
