An Fa-ch'in
安法欽 (n.d.) (PY An Faqin; Jpn An-hokin)

    A priest from Parthia in western Asia who was active in China as a translator from the late third through the early fourth century. He went to Lo-yang in China from his native Parthia, where he translated five Sanskrit Buddhist scriptures into Chinese, including The Story of King Ashoka. "An" in his name refers to An-hsi, the Chinese name for Parthia, a state that stretched from northwest India to Persia.
