Product Details

This edition also comes with a commentary and an introduction by the translator who has time and again pointed out that Ptolemy majorly relied on Indian sources even in his description of other parts of Asia and this work further explains that the people of Central Asia were known to the Sanskrit scholars. Ancient India as described by Ptolemy is illuminating for the serious student and layperson alike.
