The Alchon Huns, also known as the Alchono, Alxon, Alkhon, Alkhan, Alakhana and Walxon, were a nomadic people who established states in Central Asia and South Asia during the 4th and 6th centuries CE. They were first mentioned as being located in Paropamisus, and later expanded south-east, into the Punjab and central India, as far as Eran and Kausambi. The Alchon invasion of the Indian subcontinent eradicated the Kidarite Huns who had preceded them by about a century, and contributed to the fall of the Gupta Empire, in a sense bringing an end to Classical India.

  • Alchon (auch Alkhon genannt) ist der Name einer spätantiken zentralasiatischen Stammesgruppe, die um 400 im heutigen Afghanistan in der Region Kabul eine lokale Herrschaft etablieren konnte und im 6. Jahrhundert Teile Nordwestindiens eroberte. Der Name Alchon ist nur auf Münzen belegt, schriftliche Quellen berichten nicht direkt über sie.
