Arachosia is the ancient name of an area that corresponds to the southern part of today 's Afghanistan, around the city of Kandahar. It is directly to the south of Bactria, but is separated from it by the Hindu Kush. The main inhabitants of Arachosia were Pactyans, an ancient Iranian tribe. They were probably the ancestors of today's Pashtuns.
