"THE BUGAT INSCRIPTION: the oldest Mongolian language monument. A recently-published study of Brahmi script on the Bugat stele, erected 584-587AD, concluded it may have been a Mongolian-language inscription. This is Mongolian studies' greatest discovery in the last few years!"

Probably after 6th century BC, Kharoshti script was predominant in Indus Valley region (Pakistan). Brahmi script was known in southern India.
