The Kushan Empire was a syncretic empire, formed by the Yuezhi, in the Bactrian territories in the early 1st century. It spread to encompass much of modern-day territory of Afghanistan, Pakistan and northern India. The Empire went into decline in the 3rd century, but fragments of it lasted until the rise of the Guptas in the late 4th century,
