I was working on some research and I need some help finding sources about this topic. I was going to look at Herodotus, but I feel like I need more sources about Greeks living in the Persian Empire.

There were Greeks in north western India, the Gandharan provinces as early as 500 BC. Being the erstwhile satrapy of Achaemenid Persia, Gandhara would have been home to several exiled greek communities and artists who served Achaemenids.

Interesting. I might look into that.
