History

Ram Sarup Joon [8] writes that ...Antal Tanwar: It cannot be said with certainty why they wee called Antal. They might be (antim=last) Tanwar rulers, about Sonepat. They have 24 villages near about Sonepat.


Greek historian Pliny has mentioned about Antal as Amatae, [9]the people living in Sindh.

Andhak Jats were the rulers of Anjai in the north of Mathura. Uttar Pradesh. Initially they lived in Sindh. Found in Gujarat also. Pliny has called them Amitae people, who were known as Antal in Jats. [10]

Antal (आंतल) Jats are said to be from Tanwars who had took out the intestine (आंत) of enemies in a war hence known as Antal (आंतल). This gotra is based on title.[11]

Megasthenes has described about this clan in Indica as Amatae. He writes, Then next to these towards the Indus come, in an order which is easy to follow The Amatae (Antal), Bolingae (Balyan), Gallitalutae (Gahlot), Dimuri (Dahiya), Megari (Maukhari), Ordabae (Buria), Mese (Matsya). (See -Jat_clans_as_described_by_Megasthenes)

Atil, also spelled Itil (literally meaning "Big River"), was the capital of Khazaria from the middle of the 8th century until the end of the 10th century. The word is also a Turkic name for the Volga River. Atil was located along the Volga delta at the northwestern corner of the Caspian Sea.

The Russian "Antas" are the same as the Indian Antals. [12]

अन्धक शब्द से अन्तल

ठाकुर देसराज लिखते हैं - भगवान् कृष्ण ने पहले-पहल अन्धक और वृष्णि लोगों को सम्मिलित करके ही ज्ञाति राज्य की नींव डाली थी, जिसका कि हम पीछे के पृष्ठों में वर्णन कर चुके हैं। अन्धक लोग मथुरा से उत्तर की ओर आजकल के आंजई नामक स्थान के आसपास गणतंत्र प्रणाली से शासन करते थे। साम्राज्यवादी जरासंध से तंग आकर ये वृष्णियों के साथ समुद्र-स्थित द्वारिका में जा बसे थे। राजपूताने से होकर ये किस समय संयुक्त-प्रदेश में वापस आए, यह कुछ पता नहीं चलता। किन्तु आजकल ये औंध, अन्तल और अनलक नामों से पुकारे जाते हैं। अन्धक शब्द का औंध, अन्तल और अनलक बन जाना भाषा-शास्त्र से बिल्कुल सम्भव है।[13]
