2500 Years old Telangana

Telanagana has been known by that name for at least 2500 years. It was the name that the Romans, Greeks and Persians knew it by Greek traders in the Ptolomiac and Roman empires regularly went to South India and even onto China via the well known trade route starting from Alexandria, down the Nile, portage across to the Red Sea, down the Red Sea and then straight across the Arabian Sea to modern Kerala. This is how Saint Thomas, disciple of Christ, got to South India and why Kerela has 20% Christians since that time. The many hordes of Roman dinari gold coins that have been excavated in the extreme south of India also in many parts of Telangana along satavahana coins

also attest to this fact.
