Ancient India in the eyes of Megasthenes

Indika, based on Hekataios' Aegyptiaka, was written in either the Attic or Ionian dialects and was divided into four sections. Megasthenes documented the India's soil, climate, animals, plants, government, religion, people's manners, arts, and so on. In a nutshell, it's a detailed description from the king to the most remote tribe.
