Parthiaball was an ancient Persian kingdom located in modern-day Iranball.

History

On 329 B.C, Alexander the Great finally conquered the Achaemenid Empire after a hard-fought campaign. He then invaded the Indian Subcontinent and achieved a victory over the Pauravas at Hydaspes River. Although he wanted to expand further, his homesick troops wanted to finally go home and Alexander, fearing a mutiny, decided to retreat.

On 323 B.C, Alexander died young and without an heir. The generals decided to carve out their own independent kingdoms/empires out of Alexander's territories. Antigonus acquired Macedonia, Greece and other Macedonian holdings in the Balkans, Ptolemy I Soter acquired Egypt and some parts of Syria while Seleucus I Nicator received the whole Achaemenid Empire.

On 311 B.C, Antigonus invaded Babylon. However, he was defeated by Seleucus and it gave him firm control over Alexander's eastern satrapies.

In the region of Punjab, Chandragupta Maurya (Sandrokottos) founded the Maurya Empire in 321 BC. Chandragupta conquered the Nanda Empire in Magadha, and relocated to the capital of Pataliputra. Chandragupta then redirected his attention back to the Indus and by 317 BC he conquered the remaining Greek satraps left by Alexander. Expecting a confrontation, Seleucus gathered his army and marched to the Indus. It is said that Chandragupta could have fielded a conscript army of 600,000 men and 9,000 war elephants. Chandragupta defeated Seleucus and Seleucus offered his daughter's hand in marriage to Chandragupta in exchange of 500 war elephants. This elephants will play a big role in defeating the enemies of the Seleucids, including other diadochis and Turkic tribes from Central Asia.
