The Kharoṣṭhī script is an ancient Indic script used by the Gandhara culture of ancient Northwest South Asia in the Gāndhārī language. An alphasyllabary, it was in use from the middle of the 3rd century BCE until it died out in around the 3rd century. It was also in use in Bactria, Gandhara (the period of the Kushan Empire), Sogdiana and along the Silk Road, where there is some evidence it may have survived until the 7th century in the remote way stations of Khotan and Niya.
