From 130 BCE a nomadic people, the Yuezhi, started to invade Bactria from the north. In 125 BCE he abandoned Bactria and moved his capital to the Kabul valley, from where he ruled his Indian holdings.
The Greeks continued to rule northern India to the end of the 1st century BC, under the Indo-Greek Kingdom.
