Arachosia, which belongs to the territory of Aria, is not far distant; it lies at the foot of the southern side of the mountains, and extends to the river Indus. The length of Aria is about 2000 stadia, and the breadth of the plain 300 stadia. Its cities are Artacaƫna, Alexandreia, and Achaia, which are called after the names of their founders. The soil produces excellent wines, which may be kept for three generations in unpitched vessels. Margiana is like this country, but the plain is surrounded by deserts. Antiochus Soter admired its fertility; he enclosed a circle of 1500 stadia with a wall, and founded a city, Antiocheia. The soil is well adapted to vines. They say that a vine stem has been frequently seen there which would require two men to girth it, and bunches of grapes two cubits in size.
