Assaka (Pali) or Asmaka (IAST: Aśmaka), was a region of ancient India (700–300 BCE) around and between the river Godavari.[1] It included areas in present-day Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Maharashtra.[2] It was one of the shodasa (sixteen) mahajanapadas in the 6th century BCE, mentioned in the Buddhist text Anguttara Nikaya.[3]

The capital is variously called Potali or Podana, which is identified as present-day Bodhan in Telangana.[4] The Buddhist text Mahagovinda Suttanta mentions about a ruler of Assaka, Brahmadatta who ruled from Potali.[5] The Matsya Purana (ch.272) lists twenty-five rulers of Aśmaka, contemporary to the Shishunaga rulers of Magadha.

Asmaka is also identified as Assaka and Aśvakas in Buddhist literature and Gatha Saptashati of king Hāla.
