Drangiana ( , from Old Persian: Zranka "waterland") was a historical region of the Achaemenid Empire, now part of Afghanistanmarker, Pakistanmarker and Eastern Iranmarker. The land was inhabited by a Iranian tribe which the Greeks referred to as Sarangians or Drangians. The Drangians were first subdued by another Iranian people, the Medes, and later, by Cyrus the Great. According to Herodotus, during the reign of Darius I, the Drangians were placed in the same district as the Utians, Thamanaeans, Mycians, Drangians, and those deported to the Persian Gulfmarker. In 330 BC, the region was conquered by Alexander the Great.
