History

Writing With regard to the Anari Jats, H.W. Bellow says, heading the above list of Taraki sections, I may here note that the name is seldom met with in the Afghan genealogies. I have taken the name to represent the ancient Anariakai of Strabo, who (Geog.xi. 8), quoting Eratosthenes, places them on the shores of the Caspian Sea next to Hyrkania (modern Gurgan) ; for Anariakai is a compound word signifying the Anari and those belonging to them. The Anari of Afghanistan may have been a branch or colony of the Anariakai of Hyrkania, and probably gave their name to the Anardara portion of the Adraskand valley, south of Herat. There still exist in this part of the valley of the Adraskand river, where the stream flows through a narrow rocky defile, about thirty miles to the south of the town of Sabzvar, the ruins of an ancient fortified city, now called Jaya by the Nurzi, Afghan nomads who dwell in its vicinity. These ruins perhaps mark the site of the ancient Artakoan captured by Alexander ; Artakoan and Adraskand being clearly the same name. [2]
