Did the Askumites Trade Directly with India, like the Romans and Ptolemaics did

I read from an old book that the Askumites couldn't dislodge Persian monopoly over India trade but the only monopoly i am sure they had is over the Silk road, relative to the West and Africa at least, but the Romans had been trading with India since Augustus through Egypt. So is it an error/mislabeling or Did this trade stop between Rome and India stop, also did the Askumites ever pick up on this trade route and trade directly with India as well or not
