1/n Shuprabhat @saket71 bhaiya. Sorry for delayed reply.

Like how the inscription has been deciphered to “Darius’” to be calling himself Aryan, inscription also talk of “Hindus”. I’m giving primary references in string of tweets below:
2/n A) This is illustration of a kneeling subject and a hieroglyphic cartridge reading 𓉔𓈖𓂧𓍯𓇌 (H-n-d-w-y), on the Egyptian Statue of Darius I.

( Ref: National Museum of Iran)
3/n B)Darius I inscription in the foundations of the Apadana Palace.

The inscription has been deciphered as:

<Darius the great king, king of kings, king of countries, son of Hystaspes, an Achaemenid. King Darius says:
(Contd in 4/n)

4/n This is the kingdom which I hold, from the Sacae who are beyond Sogdia to Kush, and from Sind (Old Persian: 𐏃𐎡𐎭𐎢𐎺, "Hidauv", locative of "Hiduš", i.e. "Indus valley") to Lydia (Old Persian: "Spardâ") - this is what Ahuramazda, the greatest of gods, bestowed upon me. ...>
5/n C) The inscription on Darius' tomb at Naqsh-i-Rustam mentions Gadāra (Gandāra) along with Hiduš and Thataguš (Sattagydia) in the list of satrapies.

6/n The details of livius.org (my source) draws reference from Pierre Lecoq, Les inscriptions de la Perse achéménide (1997 Paris) which is the most trusted as Primary source for the subject. One who knows French can read it from here archive.org/details/LesIns…
N/n @saket71 bhaiya hope this string clarifies that “Darius-I” also talks of Hindus apart from Aryan (perceived by many as Aryan was always considered race by those who deciphered it).
