The members of this family acted as subordinate rulers and strategoi, first under the Indo-Greeks and subsequently under the Indo-Greeks and subsequently under the Saka-Pahlavas, till finally Sasan was able to establish himself as an independent ruler after the death of his overlord, Gondopharnes. In Chapter II are detailed the coins issues by the members of this family. Chapter III deals with the antiquity and habitat of the Asvaka tribe. In chapter IV, various aspects of the coins of Asvakas have been discussed. Chapter V is the proposition to connect the family of the Apracha kings with the Asvaka tribe. Chapter Vi is concerned with the socio-political and religious milieu. Then follow three Appendices. In Appendix I, the case for the existence of two kings named Azes has been pleaded. Appendix II deals with the date of Gondopharnes. In Appendix III, some important inscriptions of the family of the Apracha kings. This is followed by a Bibliography. In this endeavour, epigraphic and numismatic sources have been of immense help. Besides, literary and archeological data have also been amply utilized in this study, wherever relevant.
