Alexander's successors in India became increasingly isolated and eventually became an island of Hellenic people, completely cut off from their western kinsman. Surrounded on all sides, they succumbed to the superior numbers of local people and disappeared from history.

Indo-Scythian Kingdom, Azes II, c. 35 B.C. - 5 A.D.

|Indo-Scythian| |Kingdom|, |Indo-Scythian| |Kingdom,| |Azes| |II,| |c.| |35| |B.C.| |-| |5| |A.D.||drachm|
Azes II may have been the last Indo-Scythian king in the northern Indian subcontinent (Pakistan). Indo-Scythian rule crumbled under the conquests of the Kushans who expanded into India to create the Kushan Empire. Senior and Hoover now believe Azes II did not exist and attribute all Azes coins to Azes I or as posthumous imitative issues. A type attributed to Azes I has been found overstruck on a coin traditionally attributed to Azes II, supporting their hypothesis.
