The Indo-Parthian Kingdom was founded in the 1st century by Gondophares. This kingdom extended up to the present-day Northern India, Pakistan and Afghanistan at its pinnacle. During the major phase of the kingdom, Taxila was its capital. It was only during the last few years that the capital was shifted to Kabul.
Coins and the art of Gandhara depict Indo-Parthians with short crossover jackets and large baggy trousers, which were probably enhanced by chap-like over-trousers. Their jackets are ornamented with rows of ornamental rings or medals. Their hair is generally bushy and contained with a headband, a custom widely implemented by the Parthians from the 1st century CE.
