Kharosthi Script

🔆Kharosthi Script
 
✅The Kharosthi Script (3rd century BC - 3rd century AD) is an ancient script used in ancient Gandhara (present Afghanistan and Pakistan) to write the Gandhari Prakrit and Sanskrit.

✅ It is a sister script of Brahmi and was deciphered by James Prinsep again. 
 
✅Kharosthi is also an abugida like Brahmi. Kharosthi includes a set of numerals that are similar to Roman numerals like I, X, etc.
 
✅Kharosthi script is mostly written right to left but some inscriptions also show the left to right direction of Kharosthi.
