India
The Hebrew word {Hoddo,} in Syriac, {Hendoo,} and in Arabic, {Hind,} is rendered India by all the versions. India, or
Hindostan, is a large country of the south of Asia, extending from north to south about Esther 8:2 Esther 8:400 ; miles, and from east to west Esther 8:1 Esther 8:800 ; between 8 ; degrees and 35 ; degrees N lat. and 68 ; degrees
and 92 degrees E long.; being bounded on the west by the Indus, east by the Birman empire and Thibet, north by the Indian Caucasus, and south by the Indian Ocean. It is probable, however, that all the country east of the Indus was anciently called India.
