Ancient Persian Coins for Sale:
The White Huns / Hepthalites, 475 - 576 AD

The Hephthalites, also known as White Huns, were a nomadic people who lived across northern China, Central Asia, and northern India in the fourth through sixth centuries. The term Hephthalite derives from Greek, supposedly a rendering of Hayathelite (from the term Haital = "Big/Powerful" in the dialect of Bukhara), the name used by Persian writers to refer to a 6th century empire on the northern and eastern periphery of their land. They appear to be distinct from the Huns who migrated to Europe in the Fourth Century AD.
