India history and geogprahy

Cukhsa is mentioned In Taxila Copper-plate inscription of Patika, and Taxila Silver Vase inscription of Jihoṇika. According to Sir Aurel Stein, It is identical with modem Chach, north-west of Taxila in the North of Attock district. Cukhsa is similar to a curious Sanskrit word coska, which according to Trikāṇḍaśeṣa means a horse from the districts on the Indus. It is possible that coska is another form of Cukhsa and it denoted some particular district on the Indus.
